Security - February Virus
Portal Tibia hosts mirrors for the Tibia client, and in February it was suspected that these executable files have been modified. Such a modification could put players' accounts at risk. In fact, the file size of the official client is 100kB less than that of Portal Tibia's. This change has been discovered by anti-virus software as malicious. The fansite administrator responded to one thread, stating that their website may have been compromised to change the download links:
- (...) Portal Tibia uses [used] to just redirect the client link to Tibia.com, but suddenly this link was changed to a suspect IP. As this issue happened again this week, I've just disabled the download session for a while so we can study this case and find out how it ocurred and make sure it wont happen again.
