Hackers Changing Other People's Names [RESOLVED]

Postby SavSec » Sun Aug 06, 2017 4:51 pm

Someone was able to change my name in the game to "IDIOT" while I was playing. I asked them to change it back in chat and it got reverted back to my original name! Is anyone else aware that this can happen?!
I don't have any details on how they were able to do this but I felt like it is nessisary to inform you that some players can do this!

I believe someone may have pulled a prank on you with this. :) Current naming conventions are not only local to your device, but name changes are also only allowed once per device!

Given that this is a game about Hacking though, and since I don't know what transpired, I'd be remiss if I dismissed this completely. :P If you have a screenshot of this I'll be happy to shed some light on it as to what may have happened.

I forgot to mention somethings:
1.) I had already changed my name once (So when I tried to revert it I couldnt)
2.) I don't know who changed it but it occurred in Russian chat
3.) I was online the whole time during the event (which means no other device that I own was online to change it)
After doing some thinking I believe someone might have been able to spoof a name changing request to the Hacker's unity server (I can't confirm this but I also think that the game prevents you from clicking "change name" more then once but doesn't actually stop more then 1 request)

Have passed this on for review, just to be sure. Thanks for the report. :)

Thanks a lot for the report! Just, please, next time, specify your ingame name with a bug report, that saves us a lot of time :)
Anyway, I think I managed to find what happened in the server logs... Interesting... Obviously it is not a desired behavior :)
But I should now have all the info I need to debug it and hopefully find a way to prevent it, thank you very much ;)
