Regarding Recent Forum Downtime
We wanted to provide an update regarding a situation that occurred regarding our forums recently.
As some observed during the morning of Dec 21st on MapleStory’s forums, content that had not actually been posted by a member of Nexon appeared under an employee’s name. We’ve removed some malicious HTML tags that allowed this to occur, and some users may have observed anomalies regarding the Private Message system.
From our investigation, those responsible for the exploit were not able to gather direct user details or passwords. However, we always recommend updating your passwords regularly, and not using the same password across multiple websites.
Once able to determine the specific issue(s), we took all of our Nexon game forums offline to investigate and correct the issue. During that time, we put in some additional safeguards as well. We also rolled back the MapleStory forums to a period before the exploit began, so some posts from yesterday evening or overnight may have been removed.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during this downtime of the forums, and hope you continue to enjoy using them.
and 4 others.
Through other channels, other member's private conversations were accessible besides those in the conversations, and in some cases edited. Was this also resolved during the maintenance? I want to ensure our private conversations remain.. well.. private.
Edit: The exploiters posted an explanation of how they were able to exploit the Nexon Forums and the method they used, which relates very loosely to the explanation and issues aforementioned. They luckily stated that no user details or passwords were compromised, however also recommended the changing of passwords if you feel inclined.
Edit Edit: At least with my limited knowledge of the exploit, it appears it has in fact been resolved. Cheers!!
Keep up the great work.
It was weird to have strangers inside the Pm-box and i hope this would never happen again. As it violate the privacy of us players.
this is still happening @oneletter
it's happening specifically on some posts in the forums, and this one was taken from the thread 'forum rollback compensation'
here's the link: http://forums.maplestory.nexon.net/discussion/9215/forum-rollback-compensation#latest
the embed for accidentally clicking on the large text takes you to a porn video, on both mobile and desktop forums
Seems to me Nexon can't be trusted to operate a forum that allows users to use "simple html". We should go back to the nice closed bbcode of vBulletin.
