6/23/2015 - Exploit/Hack bounty.
- 2:00 pm: ZeroDay(++) Contacted us about a potential hack/exploit which could force servers to crash unexpectedly, as well as have other unintended side-effects.

- 2:58 pm: ZeroDay(++) provided the steps for reproducing the issue.

- 3:25 pm: Issue reproduced internally and confirmed.

- 3:50 pm: Bounty confirmed and payment for issue approved.

- 4:06 pm: Payment sent through Paypal.

Will update this as we fix the issue and can confirm payment has been received.

Again, we offer $100 bounties for anyone who can provide us with hacks of any kind (which are NOT aimbots/esp/speedhacks) that can have an impact on gameplay or server stability on our official, online servers. Feel free to reach out to info@studiowildcard.com with details.

Congrats to ZeroDay(++) for our first legitimate, confirmed bounty. May he live long and prosper.

- The Right Hand.

So you're basically saying the "reproduced" crash was the crash that just happened.....O.o that made me lose a bronto I was taming for 4 hours now.....I'm ♥♥♥♥♥♥

Internally, do not worry, that wasn't what caused your loss. ( internally = their own test server, not the ones we can enter )
