    Don't be toxic mate, this is not funny anymore. I don't like dramas and I was never involved in drama(s).

    I also thought this was possible but I don't think it is unless the code must be screwed up.

    Huh, this actually is a bit scary though, I'm not being targeted, but it seems bad for the people who are, I sympathize with you guys.

    Won't it be cool if thered was a AAP(Advanced Account Protection) thing for forum accounts too?
    They are two types of people in the world. Me and not me.

    We have been targeted literally for hours, and Growtopia Forum won't stop sending me these emails. I've blocked Growtopia forums on my email so it can go to spam and I'll later delete them all

    Oh and, many others are getting emails about that too...
    It's about time Ubisoft does something about it.

    Update: looks like a distributed denial of service. The attacker is using alot of IP addresses.
    I got 434 emails in 4 hours lol

    To everyone else:
    Please note that DDoSing is really really illegal and violates the "Computer Fraud and abuse act" if I remember correctly you can get a maximum of 10 years in prison and a 10000 USD fine.
    To thine own self be true,
    and it must follow,
    as the night the day,
    thou canst not then be false to any man.


    I have read through Ubisoft's ToS and EULA, feel free to ask any questions!

    ...

    I seriously doubt the hacker has personal beef with everyone that's being attacked, the most likely thing that's happening as of right now is random usernames being generated

    Don't bring whatever personal vendetta you have into this and mask it as "oh maybe the hacker...", unless they outright say it is then it probably isn't, and out of every theory I've heard this is the least likely to be true. I've heard stuff like "richest, most active, etc" but I think this is out of the ballpark

    C'mon guys, we all know the hacker just wants to know the price of White Crystals using GrowStone's price checker,lol.

    In reality though, this is pretty scary, the forum's security system and functions are SERIOUSLY outdated. Someone should fix the forums.

    Also I've noticed that the attacks are random-looking, since master forumers,lesser wizards and even knights are being attacked. But I doubt that they're random, since it looks like they're hitting the ones who currently or has had a profile status in their siggy wherein they're pretty rich.

    A NEET but has a stable job at a cafe

    Would try to help whenever possible,except for trying to be social,of course.

    Happy 562 emails!
    This just shows how inactive the staff are at checking the existence of this thread and taking down temporarily this forum.

    Oh and, this thing could've been avoided by using Cloudflare. Just turn under attack mode to on and we're safe.
    But no! Ubisoft is too important for CloudFlare.

    Kairos is on, I think. Try and message him/her, I'll try to do the same. Or we could msg NekoRei on Discord,maybe that'll work or get attention at least.

    Default Could it be related to my issue?

    When using my computer for the Forums, I’ve been receiving malicious redirects at least once. They were all blank. I checked my history, and the webpages said loading. I am wondering if this hacker possibly have hacked this website or I am infected with a virus, which I hope not. I do have an antivirus, which makes it a bit unlikely.

    My only question is, ARE THE FORUMS SAFE?

    Also, if you want to know more about my issue,
    https://www.growtopiagame.com/forums...-Account-Issue

    By the way, an attacker having a lot of IP address. They could be bots.

    Forum is safe, They wasted their hours for doing these things and didn't even succeed. They are probably asking themselves if this was actually worth it.
