rumors hold that the exploit was rendered as a service offered from a 3rd party. probably used a set of alt accounts to fish for information and would apparently sell the information for RL cash.

as far as i know there were a few from H6, H3 and H19 taking advantage of the service

assuming this info to be true i doubt any high level accounts were banned (as the hacker covered his tracks)


but the attack packets sniffing had to be done on specific players account and from what i heard this one have been use for much longer than the other exploit.

i dont know the specifics, but if they needed the high-level account to get the target information than they would probably use several other accounts at random as well as the target to hide who it is they are trying to get info for

i just assume that if the people doing this are sophisticated enough to do this would also be clever enough to avoid getting caught

This specific data is actually being sent to the client constantly and is in fact visible to anyone. While certain types of programs which manipulate and interact with the game client are specifically prohibited, an additional alarm or other form of notification which is triggered by information readily broadcast from the client is not. In the past many players have used many different forms of third party notification systems to alert them of incoming attacks. :)

StarReaper services for these alerts its frowned on but not actually bannable?

There's no official opinion on players doing this and it is not bannable.

This exploit was not an alert. It was an example of a program which which manipulates and interacts with the game client and is specifically prohibited as stated in your reply from Lord Alacrity.
