A while ago someone hired me to build a vibe place, we later became “friends” or so i thought.
A while later I was building something big for him (he was supposed to pay me 20K for it) and he wanted me to add him to tc so he could see what i was doing.
I was just done with it so I put him on edit for not too long.
I thought I could trust him since I’ve known him for a while, we played games together and I made some commissions for him which he payed for.
He came in studio and said it looked nice and everything.
I later found out he stole everything.
I joined him in game and I saw him telling his friends how he made that and stuff.
He was claimed that he built it while I did.
When i joined he banned me instantly.
One of the people there contacted me (my discord is in my bio)
And I explained to her what happened.
her and her friends later confronted him and he kept evading all the questions and ended leaving.
A few weeks later I went back into studio and saw the place polluted with scripts, (he probably put them there for the short period of time he had acces to studio)
And I found all these random scripts and whenever i try to play the game I get kicked from it.
If you have any more questions reply to this topic or send me a private message ^^
Its a backdoor, all you have to know is that it’s malicious do delete them, and do a virus scan just to be on the safe side of things. Since your asking what this is i’m assuming its from Toolbox. Refrain from taking things from workspace as much as possible sad thing is it’s not safe.
EDIT: Fixed it accidently said workspace, even forgot its name after not using it for so long
There’s various ways to do it, searching through every scripts (Ctrl + Shift + F) and finding keywords like “getfenv”, “setfenv”, or “require” or using a antivirus plugin, I reccomend manual scanning with searching through other scripts however
Ah sorry to hear your story, I genuinely don’t collab or have people come into the studio with me unless I’m in a close contact with them or I’ve know the for year, just keep try not to invite people even if you know them for sometime into the same studio as you. You could very well avoid these scenario’s completely.
Yeah I usually never invite randoms in studio but I knew this guy for a while now and i thought I could trust him since he seemed like an actual friend.
Never inviting anyone in studio. Never making the same mistake again.
I should also clarify that backdoors/viruses have access to the server-side, this allows problems such as the backdoor breaking your game, crashing players, or worser, it can give a server-sided executor to some whitelisted people. I will try reverse-engineering this code and see where it leads to just in-case.
