WoW Patch Day 4.0

Posted by Kaelten Oct 13, 2010 at 15:14 UTC

As everyone knows by now Wow's 4.0 patch hit the US yesterday, and now the EU servers are up as well.

I just wanted to remind everyone that the new TOC # is 40000, and that to get a new update out to the majority of your users with this you'll need to flag a new file as a Release build.

We're seeming to be pretty stable overall, which is great given how much has changed in the hosting situation in the last few weeks.

If you do have any issues please do make sure to report them, as this is probably one of the most stressful weeks we'll have on the whole network for sometime.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the patch day and enjoys the new 4.0 systems and content!

(I'm posting this on sc2mapster as well since it could affect the performance/stability for you guys as well)

If you are looking to update an abandoned or inactive project, please read CurseForge/WowAce Policy on Inactive and Abandoned Projects first.

Warning: New Flash / Reader Vulnerability

Posted by Kaelten Jun 07, 2010 at 16:08 UTC

Today a new Adobe Flash and Adobe Reader exploit became public knowledge. It's actively being exploited, and we could all be targets.

Quote:

Adobe has announced that an exploitable flaw in Adobe Reader 9.x, Acrobat 9.x, and Flash 9.x and 10.x has been discovered and is being actively exploited. Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux versions are all affected. The flaw allows arbitrary code execution by attackers, and hence it is deemed "critical."

Read the full article at ArsTechnica

The article linked provides some details on how to protect yourself. But in summary, there is no current fix from Adobe. Downgrading to Reader 8.x can save you there, and apparently updating to the latest 10.1 beta of flash can help, but that seems scary in it's own right.

If you don't have an authenticator already, we'd recommend getting one. Pick your flavor:

Be safe guys.

WoW 3.2.2 on the PTR

Posted by Ackis Aug 18, 2009 at 21:49 UTC

3.2.2 is now on the PTR. Patch notes are as follows:

General

  • The Brood Mother Returns
    • After years of lurking in her lair battling the many brave adventurers who travelled from afar to challenge her, Onyxia returns to commemorate World of Warcraft’s five-year anniversary.
      • Onyxia has been scaled to offer new challenges to level 80 players and is now available for testing in 10- and 25- player modes.
      • Adjustments have been made to the encounter to keep it fit for modern raiding, but the fundamental experience of fighting the Brood Mother will remain, as will the horror of the Deep Breaths!
      • Some classic items Onyxia offered level 60 players will have their stats adjusted appropriately for level 80 players.
      • Brood of Onyxia, a very rare 310%-speed mount modeled after Onyxia herself will be available for the luckiest of challengers.
  • Copied Test Realm characters will no longer be copied with their achievement history in order to better facilitate the character copy process.
