Some of you may remember me, and others may not. I played Acer Defino for around two years on this server, and then played Lori Krisoli for another year. I use to play on Arabel literally everyday, but I got offered to be an admin on a different server. I helped modeled some of our forums and some of the new server polices after Arabel.
I was hoping that the Arabel staff, could help our staff with a major problem were having. About two months ago we banned a guy named Jernak from our server for meta-gaming, transferring and griefing. We thought that this would be the last we saw of him, but two weeks later he was back on our server with a new screen name, IP address, and CD key. We confronted him and re-banned him from the server in the hopes that it would be the last we saw of him.
Then about two days later he started logging in with the same CD key and a different IP address, then log off only to result in our server crashing. Every couple of days he would repeat the same pattern, log in, log out, our server crashes. He kept sending threats that were now the target of a "Secret cult of hackers" for banning him, and that if we unban him then they'll stop. Obviously we didn't unban, we've banned almost 6 different CD keys from from him but we can't seem to get him off the server.
The most recent attack that we had was today, he logged on when no DM's were around and used a DM spell on one of our players:
Then he logged off and crashed our server again.
The staff and I have been looking on the net for help, but we couldn't find anything. So I thought that the Arabel Staff must have had to deal with hackers before. Can you help us out?
