    Sometimes, ego is really all a man's got.

    I really do hope everything goes well tomorrow. Maybe we're all wrong and Xigncode will be the savior Tera has been seeking. Maybe Wellbia will add in a bunch of optimizations and the game will run faster than ever. Only time will tell. :)

    What, are you assuming mEME will launch a Ultra turbo overclocking device that will make their server run and hold at least 50 people without lagging like hell? :O that sure would be a good news. @mEME, is that a side effect of Xigncode3? Darn this is great news. I can't believe it... would explain why Ktera running super speed :O

    this is and always has been about player data mining. Their doing the the same thing that FB/Google/Microsost do, getting as much information on their customer's and selling it for the most profit as possible.
    You nailed it right there. But this malware they are adding is worse than what even facebook does. This Xigncode can scan any file on your PC, under the guise of looking for "hacks". Facebook, let me be straight - they are a criminal organization which illegally sells off peoples identities to anyone who pays them.

    This program is even more aggressive than that, it has the power to look at anything on your pc and only the most desperate people will continue to play TERA and risk their safety. And while you have TERA loaded and this XIGNCODE rootkit is running, it has an active keylogger which detects macros/keystrokes etc (u know, to prevent hacks lawl lol)... now you forget you have TERA running... you load up your banking site to pay off a bill... bam goodbye to your money, this shady korean company with the 1990's website now has access to your account, it captured the website you typed it, obviously a banking site, then captured your login id and password. You just better hope your bank will get your money back before you can't pay your rent and food and end up on the street.

    This isn't an inhouse anticheat system, its a 3rd party one, and a shady one at that with excessive amounts of evidence of wrong doing. Glad at least i got the warning before i ran the game again. Just remember not to run the patcher today on June 7th 2018, because once this is on your pc, may as well format it because its compromised.

    You got a good point though using a laptop that has basically nothing else on it, because they can't mine the data if theres nothing on there to mine.

    They are probably just using this Xigncode to see how many of us play Fortnite over PUBG. Fortnite players will get their system hijacked until they switch games.
  • Having looked at Tera Online's Privacy Statement -- http://tera.enmasse.com/legal/privacy-policy and also looked through the sort of things that Wellbia collect from their website, I have to say - I'm not half as concerned as I was to begin with. Your privacy rights and your rights to access your personal information are not diminished in any way here.

    So for me the only reason to stop will be if this patch ruins the play-ability on a performance scale.

    Similar thing already happened. PUBG created a randomware virus that forced people to install the game and play it for 1 hour to get their files unlocked. What you just said is pretty much going to happen. Not exactly sure how the game is still allowed to run after this, but i guess money talks.
  • XIGNCODE3 FAQ

    1. What files does XIGNCODE3 scan/log/record?
    When certain conditions are met, the files will be added into the checklist for XIGNCODE3 to scan, log, and record. The certain conditions here is referred to the malicious programs that are registered in the XIGNCODE3 database. The only reason for accessing the data is to check and determine whether the relevant file is a normal file or not.
    If the conditions are met or the file seems suspicious, a part of the file data (one-way hash value and the file name) can be recorded as a log and also transferred if necessary, but in a form that the original file cannot be recognized. Similar to an anti-virus program scanning for a virus, the sole purpose is to only check the structure of the file and no other reasons apart from it. Apart from the one-way hash value and the file name, XIGNCODE3 does not collect the data of the whole file nor does it transfer the whole file to other external servers.

    2. When does XIGNCODE3 collect data?
    Once the game is launched and XIGNCODE3 runs correctly, it will start collecting data once it begins to search for hack tools existing in the user’s PC.

    3. What does XIGNCODE3 do with my data?
    With the data collected, XIGNCODE3 is able to determine if an error had occurred and what had caused that specific error. For users that had an unexpected error, we can provide the users with solutions with their data. And based on this data, we can also identify which users had used hacking tools and can restrict those users.

    4. How long does XIGNCODE3 retain my information?
    XIGNCODE3 strictly adheres to the Personal Data Privacy Law and manages the data accordingly. After the data is stored, it is disposed after an average of 2 to 3 months.
    The logs stored are only used for checking if hack tools were used during gameplay, or to investigate XIGNCODE3 errors and nothing else.

    5. How can I request Wellbia to delete all of my data?
    It is impossible for XIGNCODE3 to retrieve personal files as a whole, and it is also not possible to identify any personal information from the collected data. The data collected is only specific data that is related to the game, and no personal information or files are collected. Users can rest assure that there is no chance of any leaks of personal information or files.

    6. How do I fully remove XIGNCODE3 from my PC?
    XIGNCODE3 is located inside the folder where the game was installed and only runs when the game is launched, and ends when the game is closed. (There are cases when the XIGNCODE3 tray icon may remain, but it is not actually running). XIGNCODE3 is fully deleted when the game is uninstalled and only deleting the XIGNCODE3 files and launching the game will cause an error, and will require a reinstallation of the game. In addition, XIGNCODE3 cannot run separately by itself without the game launching.

    7. How do I find out what a XIGNCODE3 Error # means?
    Please refer to this site for your reference. (Http://www.wellbia.com/faq/index_en.html)

    8. What precautions are taken to protect the data that is collected by XIGNCODE3?
    To prevent the data from the hands of outside sources XIGNCODE3 uses security programs, anti-virus programs, encryptions, and the specific accounts and IP addresses that are allowed access to the data are constantly monitored.

    9. Why does the 32-bit version of XIGNCODE3 work differently from the 64-bit version?
    Just like how the game requires 2 different versions to be suitable for the 2 different Windows operating systems, XIGNCODE3 also requires each version to be compatible accordingly.

    10. Is the data that is sent encrypted?
    The data is encrypted with XIGNCODE3’s own encryption method.

    11. Does XIGNCODE3 modify any of my files?
    XIGNCODE3 does not tamper with any files, and only scans to check the files like an anti-virus program to see whether or not a hacking tool is installed. Also, you can rest assure that no data is collect from normal files. There have been a number of cases where hack tools were disguised as photo files and such suspicious files can also be checked at times.

    12. Why does XIGNCODE3 prevent other anti-cheat from running?
    XIGNCODE3 does not block other anti-cheat programs, but it cannot be executed at the same time as GameGuard (nProtect). XIGNCODE3 has already attempted to fix this issue but there is no longer anything XIGNCODE3 can do anymore, since GameGuard (nProtect) has not fixed the part on their side. If other anti-cheat programs are run at the same time as XIGNCODE3, there is a chance of a compatibility issue which may lead to a crash. In cases where you experience this situation, please share this information with XIGNCODE3 and the regarding issue will be further investigated.

    13. Have there been any known breaches of the data stored at XIGNCODE3?
    XIGNCODE3 is constantly concerned about the leakage of its stored data and is always seeking to improve in securing the data is a safer manner and so far, XIGNCODE3 has not encountered any breaches or leaks. In addition, the data stored by XIGNCODE3 is only kept for a specified period and is deleted after a certain period. If a breach was to actually happen though in the future, the data stored by XIGNCODE3 does not store any whole files or personal information, and so there cannot be any leaks of personal information.

    14. Why does XIGNCODE3 flag some of Microsoft Windows updates as a threat?
    For instance, in cases where Microsoft Windows has preview build updates, there are numerous internal changes in the operating system and it is difficult to confront to all the changes in advance. Due to this, before the official Windows update XIGNCODE3 runs tests with preview builds as well and works on fixing any false errors to prevent errors from occurring when the official update is released.

    15. How large and how often is the data being sent to XIGNCODE3, will this negatively impact users with data caps?
    There is no specified set size of the data since the size of the data is determined by various factors such as file type, size, and etc. Also sending the data at regular intervals will reduce the performance of the user’s PC and so it sends the data in a variable period or when a certain event occurs. Also, there are no negative factors at all to users that have a data cap.

    16. Is there any support or guides provided by XIGNCODE3 on how to troubleshoot what software may be preventing the launch of the game client?
    XIGNCODE3 has a detection code in the error pop-up with a simple description of the error. To help us find out what the cause of the error is, you can send your XIGNCODE3.log file (located within the game folder) to [email protected]

    I don't want useless junk scanning my pc even if I don't play this game and send it god knows where. It does nothing to stop existing cheating tools so there's no reason to implement it. If you want something against that implement working solution, not this easy to bypass spy tool.
    Don't implement it, thank you. (if anyone from eme is even reading this).

    Worried player.

    There's actually people defending this? What a sorry excuse for a life you have.

    Let me tell you something, if that wasn't obvious enough. Nobody gives a [filtered] what someone CLAIMS. Does a thief claim he steals? So stop linking the "official sources" because they mean nothing. This is why operating systems are designed with security in mind. Because trusting someone's words is the choice of a lunatic.

    You know what the problem with XIGNCODE is? It installs a [filtered] driver. People wanted to play a game, they agreed with play the game, not have drivers installed since it didn't come with this cancer from the beginning. They deserve a FULL refund for this right now.

    Nothing else matters. What XIGNCODE does, does not matter, do you understand this simple fact? Whether it scans your files or not, is irrelevant. Because you have the power to protect yourself, using the security of the operating system. You can protect your files, if you WANT to. But all that is invalid if a driver is installed since a driver can literally do whatever it wants with you having no way to stop it. And that's exactly the problem.

    Next, you know what happens when the thief gets caught or he's honest but messes up and now you have a data leak? Even if he gets sued or imprisoned like Wellbia ought to be, you still lost everything and your privacy. Justice does not mean that the damage has been reverted, and some people really, really, couldn't care less if someone ends up in legal trouble or not, at the end of the day, if their stuff is still compromised, that's all that matters.

    But sure, keep believing that a [filtered] tier korean company is more careful and "honest" than a multi-billion dollar giant like Facebook. You guys just never learn. Actually this is way worse, you know, Facebook don't install drivers on your PC. You can protect yourself from Facebook.

    (I already quit months ago, so I really couldn't care less, but seeing you morons not understand jack [filtered] is disgusting)

    So, when we have this patch?
    Capture.jpg

    All Regions outside of Korea got the so-called "Proxy Prevention" Patch the week after that happened in KTERA. Unofficially, it's the fix for the Valkyrie Dreamslash exploit, so projectile skills can only apply damage once per hit, officially stated as this

    af2d24b7a2.png

    So, it's already been implemented.

    PS: Since EME redid their entire website, the original source for the patch notes has gone.
