Account hacked or login bug?: 6/5/2015 04:32:03


Master of the Dead 
Level 63
Report
I've just found out that someone gained access to my account, and posted in chat in one of my games -

"wow this is crazy. I'm not the user master of the dead. I hit refresh on my browser and suddenly im logged in as him!"


I have never shared my credentials, so don't know if this is a hack(doesn't seem to be, since the user actually posted something to indicate he had gained access?) or it is due to a login bug.

My profile currently says that I'm from Maryland but I'm from WA. I'm all confused!! I don't know who the person was, since he didn't say. Please advise..

Were both you you logged on at the time time? That might have something to do with it.

It is possible to be logged in on multiple devices at the same time... I used to play two games at the same time, one online, and the other with the app, on the same account before.

Well if that was the reason then we would all be on each others accounts all the time. Trust me, I want to get on MotD's account.

Very odd. At least he/she did nothing malicious.

If it says they were from the same place, it might be the same 'hacker'.

Anyone mailed Fizzer about that?

Also, do you guys sign out or stay in all the time?

I was inadvertently logged in as "Master of the Dead" and left that message. I will speak directly with Fizzer instead of leaving too many details here. That way others would have a harder time replicating it.

I don't stay in all the time. In fact, I play on Google Chrome's Incognito.

Quite a long time ago (perhaps a year now), I found myself in someone else's account inadvertently. I should have paid it more attention, but alas I did not. In any case, it happened twice in a couple of day time span, and then never again. I leave my account logged in all the time, so when I launched WL I did not go through a login screen - just directly into this person's account. I logged out, then logged back into my account and all was normal (until the second occurrence). I am virtually certain that I was using IE Browser at the time. OS is Windows 7.
I wish I could provide more information, but in any case, I can corroborate that this was not a unique occurrence.

Thank you so much for not messing with my account!!! If you could include me in your conversation with Fizzer, so as to keep me informed that would be much appreciated.

@Wick Then why would MOtD's profile say Maryland if you're from PA?

I also noticed that, while WL was under heavy load, my blacklist kept changing. At least two players that I'd never blacklisted - Angry Panda and Andres Ciguena la Arana- temporarily displayed as blacklisted in the game listings on the Multi-Player Dashboard. They disappeared from the blacklist when I refreshed.

Makes me wonder how WL actually stores this data. Part of me strongly suspects it's really inefficiently handled.

That BL thing is a bug I have reported before. Don't believe it is connected to the heavy load or login bug as that was not a problem when I had it.

For the BL thing Fizzer responded with,

" ... You are right this is very strange, I spent some
time looking into this but I haven't found the problem yet. I'm going to
continue looking into this. ..."

so as always, send in a bug report, with as many details as you can.

^ Yeah, I've also noticed it working other times. Is Warlight open source? The FizzerWL GitHub only seems to have CLOT stuff.

No, WL is closed source. In fact, even the open source CLOT stuff is just demo-code; the part of WL which handles CLOT (which CLOT-ladders "talk to") is not publicly available.

Right, I knew that CLOT was really just using the API and nothing else. :/ Darn. I expected that answer, but it still sucks to hear.

Why...!? If you genuinely believe you may be able to help track down this bug, just email Fizzer and offer your assistance; if you have credible experience, he just might give you a copy of (parts of) the code. Remember, "Closed source" just means it's not publicly available, it does not mean it won't be shared with anybody at all.

Don't get me wrong, it's certainly a long shot (I've never heard of him doing something like this), but if you're that bummed out by it... maybe it's worth a shot?
