We're running into some issues with accounts getting corrupted after they are generated. In the interests of maintaining everyone's sanity, I've deactivated the account creation system until this problem is traced as of 11:16 AM, Pacific Standard Time.

Users with existing and non-corrupted accounts will be able to continue logging in and playing normally.

I'll announce here when the issue is resolved, and we are back online.

We're back online. Let me know if there are any issues.

I've traced the error to the function that performs encryption of the private exponent. It seems to be corrupting the last 4 bits in the private exponent sequence in some of the accounts.

I'm doing code analysis of the function right now.

I've implemented a patch and I am testing that function with a pile of random data. I'll need Krash to insert that into the patch download distribution.

I'll have someone in the IRC channel test it against their broken account.

Yep... it's fixed. Waiting for Krash to come back and insert it into the installer.

Hey Thyth? I have a question. How do you do your executables? I have a project that requires an install without any ads. I have Install Creator's unregistered version. It has an advertisement at the end about "Clickteam".

You cannot access the past authenication if thats what you think it CAN do.

Create an account

If your using a Dell Latitude D620,  I suggest you use RSA-512

Continue in your ways

Same deal here can not get by the login screen. Says server "OFFLINE".

I downloaded the patch about 3 hours ago. Was the old patch reupdated and in need of being downloaded again? As per the talk in the above posts?

I've been informed privately of one other issue that we're tracing now.
