    FFXI: JavaScript exploit on the loose(Repairs inside)

    admin edit: This was related to somepage and their FFXI web page a little while ago, somepage has since been fixed so we have opened the word filter. Since SE seems to want to do jack and shit about this we offer this advice. Browse safely with firefox and the noscript plugin, keep your virus scanner up to date and dont download random crap you might find. This topic will stay around until further notice.

    -------

    This was posted in the other hacked players thread, but a separate thread needs to be made so it can be brought to the attention of the masses.
    Do not visit somepage.com, or you risk being infected.



    A malicious iframe (inline frame) has been placed on the front page of somepage.com. It is not known whether it was placed there by the administrators, or an unknown third party that gained access to the website. The iframe loads a page containing a harmful JavaScript exploit that attempts to install a Trojan on the victim's computer. It is unknown what vulnerability the page exploits, but current speculation points here. It is strongly advised that you do not go to somepage.com until the issues is resolved. If you believe you have been infected, removal instructions are on the front page of the other thread.

    Re: ]]DO NOT USE SOMEPAGE[[: JavaScript exploit on the loose

    Admin note: Some page is now a word filter for the ]]DO NOT USE SOMEPAGE[[ thing you might be seeing, this is just a note and something that will hopefully break urls and such.

    Thanks to all of the community who found and was able to get this shit handled smoothly, and many apologies to those who lost their characters and accounts, perhaps SE will take things a little more seriously when dealing with this.

    I'd like someone to remind them that this is a PC game, and something they should have been prepared for and had a much better way of dealing with.

    Who's to say we didn't get this shit from our E-Mail? I mean, shit, we can't check our E-Mail now cause it's on the same PC? They specifically made this game for PC, first, if I recall, which is open to all sorts of things, regardless of it being a 'third-party website.'

    Re: ]]DO NOT USE SOMEPAGE[[: JavaScript exploit on the loose

    does this virus automatically download to the computer without a prompt? or is it one of those "click here" type things?

    i checked the site earlier so i'm a bit concerned on how it works

    From what I understood from Sonomaa it's an autodownload function.

    Just finished my talk with a GM.

    "Thank you, Tearshang. GM support cannot get directly involved as our jurisdiction is in-game, but I will notify the proper parties. I will pass this information down to the Special Task Force so that they can do their own investigation."

    Re: ]]DO NOT USE SOMEPAGE[[: JavaScript exploit on the loose

    I deobfuscated the javascript, it is the realplayer buffer overflow from october this year. You're safe from it if you viewed somepage with firefox or opera, as the exploit only works on the activeX plugin, which those browsers can't use.
    You're also safe of course if you don't have realplayer installed at all.

    Is this the same 4 files that are listed on the other topic, or different ones?

    Given that the last update on the site was about Pankration... I guess that some people stopped caring of it.

    PS: Recursivity in word filter is fun!

    Re: ]]DO NOT USE SOMEPAGE[[: JavaScript exploit on the loose

    I deobfuscated the javascript
    Is that the high-tech way of saying you looked at the code and saw:
    Code:
    |RealVersion|
    ...
    |VulObject|userLanguage|04|RealExploit|
    ...
    |ActiveXObject|
    BTW, if you keep your software updated, it helps to avoid threats like this.

    Real patched this back in October.

    I'm not too computer-savvy, but I use Some Page often and frequently... is there any way I can check to see if I've been infected? I don't know if I have Active X.. I usually use IE Browser at work and Firefox at home. EEp. ;3
