Spying OmnomIRC PMs
« on: August 03, 2012, 01:09:15 pm »
2 things. First, if someone mentions your name in a PM so someone else, you can recieve this line too. Secondly, say I have a /query with Deep Thought open and Sorunome have one with him too, I can spy Sorunome and Deep Thought's messages to each other.

It's a potential security breach, so if you want to send PMs that aren't quick or a minimum secret, you might want to use forum messaging or IRC.

Remember the day the walrus started to fly...

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

So you are saying that if you query everyone on OmnomIRC, and some of them start talking together you can view their convo ?
Pretty bad. I'll see if I can understand Netham's code enough in order to create a fix.

A sneaky way to make people lose The Game too, but yeah seriously avoid discussing personal info via Omnom PMs such as forum passwords or stuff you don't want others to risk seeing.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

There shouldn't be a problem anymore, I think I fixed everything.
So go everyone, and share your passwords in peace. Just keep in mind that I can see them anyway.
