For the past week we've been monitoring a DICE staff member who decided to sign up and purchase a subscription under an alias "blunt", we thought it would be amusing and interesting to see what he would do, so we didn't ban him but we restricted his access. Hilarity ensues:
His initial IP address: 22.214.171.124 (netname: DIGITAL-ILLUSIONS-NET1-STO-SE) (Good job)
(Good thing we didn't ban him yet)
Home IP: 126.96.36.199
Amusing as it is, we've contacted DICE before about the exploit only to have them ignore us. They didn't need to try to infiltrate to get information.

Let this serve as a warning to all hack-sites that DICE will sign up with their own office range as a means of being stealthy? This is the stupidest infiltration we have seen in a while.
Edit: Looks like this was posted on Reddit, let us clear something up: We sent an exploit that "crashed" servers to DICE so they could fix it and attempted to contact them numerous times, at no point was a "botnet" or anything else used. A PoC was published publicly (which they ignored as well). So this feature was added to the cheat, and it took less then a week to be fixed.
THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CURRENT ON-GOING "DDOS ATTACKS". This incident happened months ago, the title is sensationalism.
(Keep up the good fight brother)
