Reading through the 'blue' responses really makes me appreciate the 'Red and Orange' responses we get here

Thanks for letting this f'oob into the community here at WoWI

Seeing all that crap on ui (again) makes me glad I left that place after the Ace mirroring fiasco. I was one of the more prominent members there and was even a candidate for a moderator. It seems they still don't learn. Note this is not trying to bash ui, its just my thoughts.

That "Curse Client" upload there just screams "Trojan!" to me. I doubt that ui would allow a "competitor" to upload nor do I think Curse would upload their software to a third party site.

Scanning Report

22 October 2008 16:28:25 - 16:28:28

Computer name: ----
Scanning type: Scan target
Target: Addons\30000\CurseUpdaterzip-1224675514.zip
Result: 1 malware found

Trojan-Spy.Win32.Ardamax.n (virus)
That's from F-Secure Client Security.

There's one thing that needs saying though.

Always in the past when one site found itself in the crosshairs,
it indicated an increase in activity by those that try to upload malware
on ALL addon hosting sites.

It seems it's not an isolated incident.. there's multiple malware uploads
at wowui even after all the ruckus has started and their staff is supposedly "alerted".

The weakest link is the first to break (wowui constantly in the recent period)
but it should sound the alarm for other addon sites as well to enhance their vigilance.

I left the wowui site 3 years ago. I was their Mage class webmaster/moderator, and also had FTP access to their worldofwar main page website.

While I still have 2 addons uploaded at wowui since 3 years ago, I have not uploaded any new ones since then, I only keep them updated so as to have less support issues of un-updated addons.

They just keep repeating their mistakes again and again.

I guess I don't really understand why they are allowing uploads if they have done nothing to fix the problem.

To be fair any site can have issues, including this one. The important thing is educating the users and making sure they have the knowledge and information necessary in order to make informed decisions.

No system is bulletproof. Computers fail, humans get lazy, it happens. How you react to the issue is almost as important as the fact that the issue happened in the first place. I'm glad to see WoWUI is finally getting around to removing the files in question.

Cladhaire is absolutely correct.

But, I think the thing that bugs most users is that the devs on ui.worldofwar.net seem more intent during the initial hours of a security breach return-slinging mud at the users on their forums and firing back with "It's ok/Don't worry" rather than immediately (regardless of immediate "testing/scanning" of their servers) putting notices & possibly shutting down the ability to download the suspected AddOns.

I personally was breached from an AddOn from worldofwar.net back in the day (Benecast) that resulted in the loss of everything my wife & I's accounts had. I think users/players simply expect a little better of a turnaround & attitude from the site devs in regards to the situation. Sure, someone might seem out of hand with spamming the forums and whatnot regarding the issue, but among the camaraderie with the AddOn/UI Community, we're simply looking out for one another by informing folks through the most immediate way we know how. The users cannot post the news or shut down the AddOns in question...so they resort to Comments/Forums/Etc. to get the news out. Each time this has happened, I think the community as a whole has been more judgemental not that it happened in the first place, but in how the situation was handled.

Just my 2 cents on the subject...
