Epoch, The Self-Appointed "Worldwide Leader in Payment Processing", aka A Bunch of Dangerous Amateurs

Thursday, 17 July, Year 6 d.Tr. | Author: Mircea Popescu

Generally I send a few dollars to the authors of any game I ever like, even if I only like it a little bit.

That "generally" would be always, as far as I'm concerned. It's not always because well, few game developers have as of yet heard of Bitcoin. In fact it'd appear few game developers have heard the 90s ended already, it would seen. I see no other explanation for monstrosities like Epoch still existing.

Get a load of this :


Yeah, that's right : email addresses and passwords passed back and forth as GET calls. Well done Epoch, you're so totally the World Leader in Braindamage I couldn't begin to tell you.

Forget encryption, they couldn't even be bothered to make it a fucking POST. And now someone should give their CVV2 to these muppets ?

  1. Think you've seen all? One of the leading French CC processors requires you to run a binary on your server. The thing is of course extremely poorly documented, and hasn't evolved in ten years.

    A binary that runs on nginx, rhel, centos, ubuntu and 6 types of windows ? That's impressive.

  3. Lol at taking Argentinian Peso at official rate.

    Lol what do they care, not like any locals can get a tx through anyway.

  5. For the Linux binary, static linking works well enough for this purpose, however because of it you can't have a pure 64 bit server IIRC. It doesn't really interact with the web server, you have to run it in your code.
