Impostor Megido - Unauthorized ULX version post
« on: September 14, 2008, 12:10:16 PM »
DANGER - DANGER - DANGER

Team Ulysses has just been made aware that an impostor "Megido" has posted a version of ULX on garrysmod.org not authorized by Team Ulysses
This file was NOT released by us or Megiddo
At the least, it is a post of our SVN beta code. (Non Release)
At the WORST, it may contain exploits.

REMEMBER - Always check the news and downloads pages at www.ulyssesmod.net before downloading UlX or ULib. For our other releases, monitor our releases forum at forums.ulyssesmod.net - we will always release on our forum first before updating FacePunchStudios forums or garrysmod.org


I've sent the following to Garry, and I've reported the file at garrysmod.org

Garry or mod team assistants,
Someone posing as Megiddo has posted a version of ULX on garrysmod.org that may contain exploit code.
Though we're attempting to make announcements about this in our forums and on Facepunch, removing it as quickly as possible would help us.
The link - http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=51855

If you'd be so kind as to ban the 'megido' (not Megiddo) imposter account/ip, that would be a nice addition.

Thanks,
JamminR

File has been removed, and the user no longer appears to exists. Congrats :D
