TASClient does some serious things

Post by Sereiya » 10 Apr 2014, 16:00

Is it possible the actual version of TASClient (1.05, via autoupdate function) is 'fucked up' or something?
When It started, he opened and instantly closed some IE windows, then tried to download something with the internet explorer. Simultaneous, my main browser tried to connect to 's-static.ak.facebook.com' several times, resulting in this message:
SECURITY WARNING: Please treat the URL above as you would your password and do not share it with anyone.
Could this be some kind of security problem? Do the coder of TASClient like to do kinky stuff?

It has been noticed before: it's something in the news feed that does this. Turn it off from Options->Lobby Options->Interface->Disable News

Maybe, don't let it log in to your facebook in any case. There's more discussion in this thread. About the Kinky stuff: aren't all Europeans into kinky stuff anyway ;)

There's another thread about this... the suspicion is that it's trying to open springinfo.info but doing so in some wacky way that makes the totally normal "facebook integration" code think that someone is trying to hack your facebook account... or something...
