Hey Harvey you seem to be taking this too far. That has not been proven to be Rybka code nor has the person posting this even attached the email headers supporting his claims the emaial came from Convekta. Harvey stick to ressurecting 1920 versions instead of propagating malicious rumours.

You should treat this sourcecode business as a hoax unless proven otherise.

This hoax was carried out by pranksters and unfortunately you could get your PC infected needing a full reinstall. How long before they start sending out emails with chess_update.exe or leading you to a phishing login page like the ebay scams or the Microsoft updates by email?

But a very popular hoax. People download it like hell and today 4 people desperately wanted to mail it to me. It´s amazing how eager people are to get something completely unuseful or even harmful on their drives and proudly want to spread it.

Hoax probably started by Chessbase...

Michael first of all i disagree with this and its not some of our faults that we recieved this rybka like i said it came to me the night before the orginal link but it had additional files... Its funny how the only people spreading stuff are you idiots trying to say we got something that contains a virus.  I ran a virus check and NOTHING.  So continue with the whole HOAX all you want but we didnt' get this stuff from no where!!!

If you got a link to it by mail, maybe you can post the header of this mail for our cracks here to have a look where it came from.

Running virus check and spy-/malware-check is surely a good idea, but even on negative results you can not be totally sure that it does not contain one of them. It could be a new thing. But all the speculation won´t help us to get on the ground of the matter. Quite a few people claim that they got it through mail prior to the original release by Vasik. If true this indicates some real criminal energy by the senders. They not only had to read this forum carefully for obtaning the original release date, but also gather the mail adresses of some Rybka customers. I did not get it by mail, although my mail adress is probably one of the easiest to find out by simply visiting my website....

Another thing is the download domain. Can it be really true that people think that Convekta needs to share its files by RapidShare and Co.??

First of all I consider Harvey Williamson  an important contact for us in this forum. He's been there to  help us when others were not!!!

He has been a true friend to this forum.  

As this thread is an insult to Harvey- it is an insult to this forum. I take Umbrage over its continuance, although, I recognize that the thread will not be pulled.

Sidserious i agree with you and harvery is a good person i don't think he would make it up and since i recieved same thing.   Like i said I would gladly post what ever you all want as proof.

Not necessary man!

To clarify a bit, we don't think you and others didn't get anything by mail or other means, but all we say the stuff you did get is hoax material which isn't really Rybka source code or the like.
Parent - By shauntx (*) Date 2007-06-25 23:20
Fulcrum i understand and sorry for the misunderstanding but like others i had no idea what it was i thought they sent something wrong out anyways.  because it was single processor and i ordered the mp for my 8 core so I didn't know what was wrong. But again its all fun right.  Maybe someone from there tried to joke with us =-)

Everything you say is very very true

Shauntx seems to be from the Sidserious school of hysteria. I find his failure to attach the chat logs in his Stickles thread nor the failure to attach email headers from the hackers a serious blow to his credibility.
Parent - By Michael Waesch Date 2007-06-26 09:21
Indeed. They all claim that they received the download link via mail, claim that they will post everything as proof what is being requested here, and when asked for a simple mail header ... nothing ...
