0.9.4.13 will have the visibility exploit
« on: June 21, 2003, 06:40:19 AM »
it is already implemented.

the feature is this
Quote
the "Read auto-message" command in contact menu is always available by pressing SHIFT

if you use the "read auto-message" on an offline contact &RQ will show a dialog with a message like "it is actually online but invisible to you" or "it is actually offline".
these messages won't show when you use the "read automsg" on an online contact.

i want to make some bugfix before releasing the 0.9.4.13, so please be patient

1;the "Read auto-message" command in contact menu is always available by pressing SHIFT
1;preferences: privacy&security: "warn me when someone uses visibility exploit on me"
1;if requesting an auto-message you lose your invisibility, you get warned
3;chat window: inserting a smile would scroll the input box to the top

this is the temporary whatsnew for the 0.9.4.13
and it is available for those who dare

if requesting an auto-message you lose your invisibility, you get warned
please, can you make possible for user not to lose invisibility if requesting an auto-message (in future releases)?

P.S. sorry for my "english" ;)

no, i can't, because the request is sent to the other client, and not just to the server. then your contact client KNOWS that you sent the request, then it knows you are online ;)

However you could add the user to the tempvisiblity-list and then remove it, thus I go "offline" to the user almost instantly. Most people would understand something fishy is going on, but hey, better than nothing ;)

rejetto - i think you can make a more wonderful thing B) - make an autocheck in the program for invisible users in the contact list, so the client will automaticly show  "invisible" users. without sending an auto-message for each user...

no, it is bad.
the check should be done every minute, because you don't get notified about people going offline.
imagine a world where you get an "exploit warning" for EVERY contact checking for you, EVERY minute.
you would get 500 warnings per hour.
i would search for you and kill you, or just stop using the icq network.
and also we would increase our icq network traffic by 100% ;)
