Recent discord raid

Post by Sinclair-Speccy »

Hi everyone,

I want to provide an update regarding the server.

Firstly, I apologize for any inconvenience caused by the raid that recently happened. It appears that the raid took place while I was asleep, which is unfortunate timing. From what I gather, the raid seems to have originated from the wiki mirror channel, which utilises a webhook.

Since I wasn't awake to witness the events firsthand, I don't have specific details about the account responsible for the raid. However, considering the messages were sent through the webhook, it is possible that someone managed to hijack the webhook or exploit a vulnerability associated with it. This could explain why the messages appeared to come from the webhook.

It is puzzling why our server, which caters to a small niche fandom, would be targeted for a raid. We have a significantly small user base, which makes this incident even more unusual. It's important to note that raids can sometimes be indiscriminate and motivated by various factors, such as seeking attention or simply causing chaos.

In the meantime, I encourage all of you to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities or messages that you come across. Your assistance in identifying potential threats is invaluable and will aid us in maintaining a safe space for our community.

Thank you for your understanding and patience as we address this situation. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I love you as server members but I’m not that desperate to ping everyone over and over.

Sadly, for some reason, people in external places do seem to dislike me so whenever they’re targeting me could be it, but it is most likely a troll.

We got raided again but thankfully one of the owners of the Discord server was quick to stop it. The old webhook we were using was removed and now we will be using Wiki-Bot so this shouldn't happen in the future
