WoW Insider Show Episode 58: Live at BlizzCon {WoW}

Oct 7th 2008 7:24PM Do I understand correctly that you'll be recording the shows from OUTSIDE the convention center? So, if it's really windy, won't that affect the audio quality?

WoW Insider Show Episode 58: Live at BlizzCon {WoW}

Oct 7th 2008 7:20PM Well, they've done 58 episodes so far, and i've listened to and enjoyed all of them. That's 58 hours of entertainment where I've sat down and listened to these folks talk. I think it'll be super cool to meet them in person and watch a show taping.

But that's just me.

BlizzCon schedule and interactive map {WoW}

Oct 7th 2008 8:08AM Eh? They do have Starcraft and Warcraft III tournaments.

Oct 7th 2008 12:33AM Looks like I have to choose between going to panels and watching the tournaments. That's a hard choice.

The OC Register on the BlizzCon debacle {WoW}

Aug 14th 2008 8:49PM Guys, all they had to do was load test the store before selling the ticket. It's very simple. It's standard IT procedure.

Trying to say, "Oh, how could they have expected all that traffic" is silly. That's just it -- a good programmer ALWAYS tests the system against way more than it can handle. Not doing that is bad practice. It makes things like this happen.

WoW Ace Updater ad banners may contain trojans, claim some users {WoW}

Apr 16th 2008 10:59AM Naix, I'm simply saying that those things won't save you in this specific instance. They are of course good practice, and I frequently recommend them. However, you're coming off sounding like you're safe from this specific case if you do all those things, and there isn't any evidence of that. The sane path is to not use WAU at all.

Apr 16th 2008 10:44AM Naix, according to the Sourceforge thread linked from the Wowace thread, the program embeds IE to display the ads. So yes, running firefox won't save you.

The trojans don't capture a snapshot of your entire memory. They specifically grab the password out of Wow's memory space. They also capture the clipboard, and download all of your saved passwords from your browser.

Apr 16th 2008 10:27AM A guy I played with on on Vek'nilash actually did quit the game after getting hacked twice. He said he couldn't motivate himself to get gear anymore knowing it would just be taken from him.

Apr 16th 2008 10:16AM Thanks, souvlaki. I was going off the comments in the sourceforge comment thread linked from the other thread, but it appears they closed the source after people complained about the ads. Pure ignorance.

Apr 16th 2008 10:12AM None of those things would save you in this case.

And if you really think Copy-and-pasting is a viable way around keyloggers, I really think you should think that through. Because it's wrong.
