Garpa is developing a tool to analyse user APIs for information like whether a character has been sold. We’re only a matter of a couple of years behind PL, here, admittedly, but there does seem to be quite a bit of extra info obfuscated in there which Vio and the Auth team can use in snagging spies. What we need is a sample group and Solo “Ideological Purity” Drakban won’t let us use our library of your APIs :saddowns: In any case if GARPA’s ideas about what CCP are stupid enough to store in there turn out to be correct it would be primarily of use to us with neutrals and hostiles.
So we need a bunch of pubbie APIs to test out this theory. Fortunately, we have at hand the greatest concentration of API-farmers in Eve Online: our scammers. If you have valid USER IDs and full APIs from your scams then please bundle them up and send them to me as a forums PM, here, and you will potentially be doing the alliance a substantial favour.
This strikes me as a good time to remind people that it's probably a good idea to change your limited API a couple of times per year on general principles. But if you haven't done so since the last time you gave it to someone, I'd go ahead and change it... oh... now.
Chances are -- after all -- pretty good that if you've given it to anyone, it was in turn picked up by someone in GIA since recruiting corps are none too secretive about such things.
Word to the wise.
