NANY 2012 Release: Kyrathaba's Hangman

<< < (24/28) > >>

kyrathaba:
Version 1.0.4.4 is available and this is a required update if you wish to compete via the online high-score database.

This update patches a potential exploit discovered by thancock20 (many thanks thancock20 !!)

The easiest way to update is to run the existing installed version, and use "About"->"Update".

Please note the following from the Help text file:

v 1.0.4.4 (released 8-11-2011)

   fixes an exploit found by thancock: this update is required if
   you want to compete using the online high-score database. Although
   older versions will still submit highscores, the database will
   not retain them long-term because there is a PHP sweeper function
   that will periodically cull the database of scores submitted
   with older versions which have not had the exploit patched.

And what about the current scores already there? Is my 2nd place one going to get removed since it was an older version potentially taking me out of -> "The top-three high-scoring DC members will receive an additional prize from the site." as you posted on the first post?

Sorry, I should have been clearer.  No, your existing high-scores won't get culled.  But any scores you may submit that exceed your existing high-score will be checked by the PHP script to ensure that they were submitted by a patched version of the program.  If they weren't, eventually the sweeper will get them.

hamradio:
Thanks for clearing it up more for everyone. :Thmbsup:

kyrathaba:
You bet!  Thank you for making me aware of the need for clarification  :up:
