Is there something the C&C community should know? Mail it to and let's all read it here!

notgood7 threatens WChat user

It came to my knowledge that notgood7 went onto WChat via a hacked version of that application or via IRC (internet relay chat). Fact is, he threatened an other WChat user in the C&C channel. For this he took care, that he isn't listed on the menu but still can talk to others. He was somewhat invisible thus. Furthermore he checked the IP address of an other user and looked up the name of his internet access. Both informations did he use to threaten the poor other user and to make him feel uncertain on WChat.

According to the WChat rules nobody is allowed to threaten other users. Even if everybody can find out your IP address and your online access name, it's not nice to make other users fear you would hack them. Furthermore the WChat online gaming service should only be accessed by the original application software.

For this, notgood7 has lost his good-guy-status. Sorry for you.

This was one of the emails I got about it:

    ok tonight i was on in the chat room. then NotGood7 privs me while i cant send messages to him privately because he is not listed on the people list in the channel. THE MOST IMPORTANT THIng is he found out my ip address and the other thing you may want to look at. i logged the incident but dont know what program to open with so i am gonna mail it to you. IT IS IMPORTANT TO EMAIL ME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE I FEEL MY SECURITY ON WCHAT IS AT SAKE AND WILL NOT LOG ON TILL YOU HAVE CONFIRMED IT IS OK.
