Hi gang

It's so funny (and sad), someone told me, my game is available for free somewhere on the web (it's never free) and after a lots of googling, I just found the zip (thank to another member, for a special keyword).

Hehehe, people protect their PC's with antivirus software and spyware detection, but they install a pirated version of a component made in PHP (files made in pure text), hehehe peoples don't realize how it's easy to hide a line in a PHP code.

I just make a code comparison between the pirated code and my original code, there 6 new lines, places at six strategic place in the new pirated code, one of them without the comparison. I never found it.

It’s six PHP INCLUDE of some files place on the web. (it's in base64 encryption.  I cannot know where they are on the web) Also they are very clever, they remove the exact number of characters there new lines takes from my Comments in the code, I cannot tell the difference with the size of the hacked files. Those guys are good pirates. 

For that I cannot tell what those file do, but I can tell what they can do. (I’m sure those guys didn’t buy my game and hide 6 new lines of code in it just for fun)

With a include of a PHP file, they can do everything on your server, They have full access to your DB (all your members emails, credit card number, everything that is valuable). They can easily format the server (but this is not interesting), Normally in 2011 Pirates takes every infos they can sell from you. If you have credit card number in your DB you just lost them. Again people are so stupid.

I’m sorry, It’s not my type to tell someone he or she is stupid but really when you know this, I’m pretty sure you will say the same. 

Anyway, I don’t want to support pirated version of my game, that’s why the MJ Hold’em forum is now open only for customers.

If you already bought my game, and you cannot access this forum, send me a personal message with the username you want to attach to your purchases and the email you use (paypal email) when you bought the game

Oh well, it is not the first and definitely not the last commercial extension that is being ripped and posted on warez sites. I myself as a developer of some kind actually found the thing pretty much hilarious to find all of mine extension wide spread across these sites, while all of them are totally free for download on mine :)
Anyway, dont give a too much crap about it. Yes it hurts to see your work shared like that, but it had to happen, sooner or later :) It is however, not a good reason to completely lock your forum which is the only way of communication between You, and your potential new customer.
Please, make the subforum where non-customers could ask you pre-sales related questions.
I myself have them a lot :)

Cheers

Hi

Yes your right about the access.

Also If you have question now, you can easily joint me via PM in jomsocial or in the forum message system.

Also I'm not mad about the warez version of my game, I'm really upset because they modify my code a little and use my game to hack peoples servers and website. It was very hard for me.

Anyway, time past, case close, I just re-open the General questions sections for MJ hold'em, I will found a way to make it clear in the forum.

Thanks for your support

Bill

Hi Bill :)

Dont be upset. Serious web developer would never empower the website with warez software. How would one explain to their client if someone goes wrong due the usage of such scripts.
Then again, there are lot of different people in this world :)

Anyway, all of mine questions are answered in timely manner, primarily this one :)
http://monjoomla.com/index.php/en/forum/topic.html?id=250">http://monjoomla.com/index.php/en/forum/topic.html?id=250" rel="nofollow">http://monjoomla.com/index.php/en/forum/topic.html?id=250
so theres really nothing else for me to do instead waiting :)

Cheers mate
