World of Starcraft: April's Fools or a new block buster ?

According to gamespot, Blizzard announced the new massive multiplayer adventure game World of Starcraft.
Quoting gamespot: "To put it mildly, the human brain cannot possibly fathom and the English language cannot possibly express how amazingly incredible the next massively multiplayer game from Blizzard is going to be. First screens and details!"

The only proof i could find was in the Google cache....

Blizzard bans strike again

Eurogamer reports that Blizzard is once again clearing house, and this time they mean business. From the article: "Blizzard has banned more than 5400 World of Warcraft players from the game for good as part of plans to clamp down on gold farming and cheating in general. A further 10,700 accounts have been suspended for 'participating in activities that violate the game's Terms of Use, including using third-party programs to farm gold and items."

Rootkit vs Rootkit

Want to cheat in your online game and not get caught? Just buy a Sony BMG copy protected CD.

World of Warcraft hackers have confirmed that the hiding capabilities of Sony BMG's content protection software can make tools made for cheating in the online world impossible to detect. The software--deemed a "rootkit" by many security experts--is shipped with tens of thousands of the record company's music titles.

Blizzard Entertainment, the maker of World of Warcraft, has created a controversial program that detects cheaters by scanning the processes that are running at the time the game is played. Called the Warden, the anti-cheating program cannot detect any files that are hidden with Sony BMG's content protection, which only requires that the hacker add the prefix "$sys$" to file names.

Despite making a patch available on Wednesday to consumers to amend its copy protection software's behavior, Sony BMG and First 4 Internet, the maker of the content protection technology, have both disputed claims that their system could harm the security of a Windows system. Yet, other software makers that rely on the integrity of the operating system are finding that hidden code makes security impossible.

Footmen Frenzy 5.0 news: the new hero

As HatoUp announced friday evenig the v 5.0 is on work.
He said that will be a new hero that will use a kodo or a turtle model. He will be a strength based hero and he will summon mini turtles or kodos and they will have the ability to devour. At higher levels you summon more units to devour. The units themselves will be pretty tough. Imagine of a mini tank army that is able to eat 8 taurens from your army. :D
The name of the hero isn't yet chosen but it may be from a non NoHunters member. HatoUp said that may be some kind of lottery or contest for the name but nothing is certain. Well nothing is certain about this new hero tahn he is based on summon devouring creeps.
Stay tuned for more !

Trojan to defeat Blizzard's Warden: a nightmare story

Some of you are familiar with and their small scale involvement in defeating Warden as a detection scheme used by Blizzard to prevent cheaters.
With or without using this kind of programs many users have been banned with or without any reason. Communication with Blizzards Account Administration department was useless.
Blizzard has made every 'political' move necessary to keep them in the clear. One of those states that Warden, at no time, sends any information back to Blizzard regarding anything on your computer. This means two things, 1) it attemts to find certain process behavior that would mimic something like a cheat program, which would obviously have some sort of sandbox/hiding scheme built in to keep itself out of Wardens way, and 2) a pre-discoverred list of hash's that match already known binaries. You could say it works an awful lot like a virus scanner...
The difference, however, is that when Warden finds something, anything, that looks like it could be a 'virus' you loose your account... everything. Time.. lots and lots of time. And they don't have the man power to do legitimate investigations because, as they stated before, Warden doesn't actually SEND information. And unlick any virus scanner, you can't say, 'Yo, that's not a cheat program bud.'
Creating some kind of trojan that will be detected by Warden and getting a huge amount of people banned by Blizzard will be a real nightmare....

The banning policy of Blizzard may finally lead to these kind of actions.
Let's hear your thoughts about this !
