Last week, after more than 18 hours of continuous investigations, the researchers managed to determine the results of the exploit that occurred in the previous weekend. More than 400 citizen and organization accounts and transactions were analyzed during this process.
First of all, the researchers have determined that this weak spot has only been exploited during that week-end. The donation reports that citizens have suggested to be related to this event, including Durruti and several other entities from the New World, have proven to be transactions that weren't related to the recent events. Those transactions have been carefully analyzed in the past and researchers have spent some time in the last days to determine if the actions taken back then have been the correct ones.
After finding out about the first transaction, which was considered to be illegal due to this exploit, the researchers spent the last couple of days analyzing all the data and logs. The results started to show up as the investigation continued and in the end all data was centralized. A large amount of Gold has been removed from entity accounts and all actions, like resistance wars or creating and upgrading companies, that were started with money obtained illegally have been canceled.
The following actions were taken:
- The access to the New World was permanently restricted for all citizens and organizations that used this exploit in order to create Gold (24 citizens/organizations);
- Citizens or organizations that received and spent Gold gained through these actions also received a permanent ban (62 citizens/organizations).
Even though the whole analysis involved a large amount of work from the researchers, the consequences were fast resolved. For this we received a lot of help from the tools that are used for detecting citizens that use unresolved system exploits.
Researchers also wanted to assure all of you that actions against such citizens will be taken in the future as well and they'll do their best in order for your journey in the New World to be as pleasant as you imagine it to be.
Later Edit: Updates regarding the war module will be posted in an Insider article tomorrow.
