    Exclamation Greetings and a heads-up.

    Greetings, folks. Registered here to give a heads up to EQ2 players. I've found evidence that Sony is tracking torrents and other data via surreptitious means, namely privilege-escalation and the crash dumps that everyone is complaining about. Some of the information I've personally found can be found in the following SOE EQ2 Official Forum thread: Firefox Plugin installed without permission. While the stuff I mentioned in that thread is by no means conclusive, I've found quite a bit of other interesting information--information that I am not going to share with Sony by continuing to post in the official forums. They know what they did, but no longer am I going to let them know what I've figured out. They'll just use it to further spin this. While I am done posting on their forums, I am NOT done with Sony. I've passed on everything I found to more capable hands--probably the most capable in the field. I will update this thread when I hear back and have something conclusive to pass on. Happy trails. Bug

    Also if eq2 staff had the resources to develop a rootkit or other nefarious code, imagine if that effort went into EQ2's graphics engine.

    Well they have to have been doing something with all their free time.

    Like making mini games with loot to sell on station cash.

    I wonder if captain barto owns the "more capable hands" he mentioned.

    Anyway, I run firefox and I looked at my plugins and its not there.
    It's only weird if it doesn't work.

    just read the soe thread. interesting, especially since you're getting apologies from red names. I guess the expert is a computer forensics guy, or something.

    Also, chrome won't help arlila, apparently it installs itself into any browsers you have on the computer when you run the updater.

    Keep us updated on what the forensics guy finds bug, most of us don't read official forums at all.

    I found the subject to be interesting and not sure what to make of the SOE responses.

    Regardless of supposed treachery or not, I find it highly annoying that they are storing 1gig+ dump files on my hard drive, in a separate folder (C:/Crash).
    I had 3 files in there, totaling 4.36 gigs. Did SOE plan to clean this shit up for me?
