Before I begin with the actual post, a few short words:
It’s highly recommended to install today’s version as fast as possible and in best case before your next bot start, through a security leak the help window can be and is used to show phishing, spam and ad pages, even if you didn’t open that window!
More in the following post.
The usual information
One characteristic of this version would be the absence of early-version problems: There have been some beta versions over the last weeks, which were able to fix many errors in advance, a thank you for the beta tester!
If you want to participate in the program for future versions, you can simply switch to the beta channel via the global bot settings.
Another point that is likely to be important to most users at this point is the integration of underworld features.
We haven’t yet build in the buildings in this release, but we are already on it and can probably finish it in the next weeks.
However, what is already done: Recognizing, collecting and using the hearts of darkness and gathering souls and gold – just set it like in the fortress settings and let the bot do the work.
A short note for the console versions: If the updater doesn’t work on its own, you get shown a wget command which has also a little typo (topic of the day, huh?), for downloading the bot correctly the -o option should be a -O which is fixed for the next version.
At this late hour..
Why we release today’s version so early / late and urge everyone immediately to switch to the new version has a good reason!
Over the last days, more and more users have reported that have observed that the bot shows ads, phishing messages and even self-opening windows with such things. This is a not to be underestimated risk, with the help of fast users and a bit of work in advance, we could trace the origin of the leak back to a good two year old error, which should briefly call our homepage to test some functionality in the help window, and that on bot start because the window is preloaded for faster loading – the problem: Due to a typo not our domain was targeted and so the function did not work as it should.
Ironically, that did not stop the help window from doing its job. ^^
About 7 days ago someone registered the domain www-mfbot.de (you see the “-“? That’s not our domain!) and thus gave the typo a destination and basically turned the bot into a potential advertiser.
Because it does not just have to be advertising, but technically everything can come in through this leak, we ask you to update as soon as possible, as best as possible before a bot restart!
Nevertheless, a nice rest weekend!
