You realize the more you guys say "FIX IT" and not put anything productive is pointless and causes spam. To the guy who said, "Go here and spam the notes because it'll bump it". No it doesn't bump it, vote it and don't add a note.
@Dwarden That isn't the statement that was "of note" - the "we know about it for some time" is. Hacking In Arma 2, as well as the whole beta test hack fiasco makes statements like this seem that developers are not on top of exploits and cheaters. I think a statement like that needs a bit of explaining.
security and exploits always were priority
so I think I don't need explain anything to You ...
no idea what you mean with "Beta test hack fiasco" there was no such test ...
you just assume something and you assume wrong ...
Yeah.... I don't think so...
I have screen shots from the Beta buy-in when a Hacker took over every server with a very clever hack that infected the client, and when the client would join the next server he would bring the hack with him. The hack involved a message across the client screen stating he would continue to hold the game hostage until you fixed something.. http://pixeljudge.com/file/Arma3Hacked_2.jpg
Your attitude sums up what I think of your company. We are your paying consumers and you saying "we know about it for some time" says "we knew about it but yet again didn't think enough of it to do anything about it until it became a problem, and it just did, whoops!"
here's an idea that might actually work... Instead of relying on a third party to provide your game with anti cheat measures why don't you actually make it yourself and hardcode it into the engine... Oh shock horror wait no as then BE would be out of business.
Guys please don't make personal attacks towards BI They may have known about it for a long time, but they may not have known how to replicate it. Now they do and they are working on it.
Please let them do their jobs.
Thank you Dwarden for your responses.
as Dwarden said exploits like this one are of the highest priority to us and we are currently hard at work on the fix. We are targeting the upcoming stable patch version 1.32.
Thanks for your patience.
Quick update - we have the fix ready and are testing it internally. As already mentioned it will be part of the upcoming 1.32 stable patch which should be released this or the next week. It does not change the release date of the Helicopters DLC.
