I always tell all my users to disable it. The firewall prompts when hopping worlds, using dax walker, grabbing GE prices, or loading paint images can really get in the way. I've seen some users get very irritated over having to accept all the prompts if they are not aware of the option to disable it. There's also an issue when making any connection on the JavaFX application thread on a mac - the firewall prompt never appears, and the tribot client freezes (disabling the firewall solves it).

If it's really possible to unilaterally disable firewall without user consent, that would seem as a poor implementation of this feature.

No such thing as perfect security. Sometimes, all it takes is protection from script kiddies.

However, in software development, the saying goes that if the security feature is inconvenient, the users will not use it. That's what we're seeing here, and why it looks as if it may be removed.

Being able to casually remove or subvert it is far from perfect. It turns security into a marketing shtick.

Users are often fine with some level of inconvenience as long as it serves a purpose. And you're telling us it doesn't, at all.

I'm telling you from my professional degree in software engineering as well as multiple years of experience. Let's take a very simple example; it's a known fact that most people reuse their passwords, despite them knowing the danger. We're talking about people willing to risk their bank account instead of use separate passwords or download a password manager. And we're not talking about your 85 year old grandma. People do it in every field, at every age, and at every technical competency.

The Tribot firewall is capable of preventing a large number of not-so-competent programmers hack your account. But since it's inconvenient, many users just disable it, me included.

 

And it's not "casual" to disable it. I welcome you to try. It's not particularly difficult, but the competency of most people who are interested in stealing childrens' game accounts is low.

Many, many security features are that easy to circumvent. I mean, hell, TRibot is literally based on the fact that Java security features are fairly simple to break. You can argue that they are poorly implemented, but everyone uses it and no one markets it. Probably because it's not inconvenient, and offers at least a tiny bit of protection.

That's exactly my point. Security that doesn't take a second thought to break serves no purpose. When multiple scripters are confident they can defeat the measure that's supposed to prevent them from malpractice in the first place, it needs to be improved.

People are earning thousands of dollars in this "childen's game", enough to take it seriously.

Expect future releases of tribot to disable the firewall by default.

With any luck, it will be removed altogether eventually.

 

If you're so serious about it, use the firewall on your operating system or on your router. They exist explicitly for this purpose.
