You all may have seen that someone has been going around posting unsavory content (to say the least) to various apps and challenge entries.
With the help of @TheDrone7, we've been able to locate the abuser and ban them from the site for life. We also have all his information and IP address and if the person in question were to return we'll be escalating to the authorities.
I wanted to share this publicly so that:
1- you know that we don't tolerate behavior like this
2- you secure your apps and websites preferably with Repl.it auth (which allowed us to catch the attacker)
Read more about Auth here: https://repl.it/talk/learn/Authenticating-users-with-Replit-Auth/23460
@bossotron13 It's not a phishing site LMAO, we just make a request to repl.it to verify the user and get their Email ID, username and avatar icon. It is open source to let those who worry that their credentials might be stolen know that their credentials are as safe as they can be.
Also, it's trust-able enough to win the entire Massively Multiplayer Hackathon.
