I’ve sat on blogging about this for a while, but I figure since Eurogamer is covering it in this new article I figured it’s about as mainstream news as it can get.
Last week a portion of the EVE client source code was leaked to several torrent sites by an individual with obviously little else to do. Before anyone gets all in a furor over this, it was apparently a portion of *client* code, not server side code where all the important things to the game happen.
“Access to the source code for the EVE client exposes no security vulnerabilities, has no privacy protection issues, and poses no threat to our customers’ billing information.”
So you’re safe, just don’t do something stupid like go looking for the source or discussing it on the EVE forums. Bad things can happen.
