I love the recent updates, ROBLOX, but this?
This ain’t it.
What’s preventing them from just making the module open source? The ones who generally insert these malicious models that include backdoored private modules are the ones who can’t script anyway, therefore, even if they looked through the source, they wouldn’t know how it works and wouldn’t know how to tell if it’s a backdoor, if they even bothered to look through the scripts at all.
This helps nobody, and if anything, hurts those who rely on this as a source of income, or as means to keep their source from being stolen and abused (For example, admin scripts that rely on Trello or other similar services to get bug reports from users, as they can now just spam the service with HTTP requests.)
This doesn’t help anyone, it just means slightly more competent developers can check the source of private modules in models, despite the more competent developers not inserting these models in the first place. The average joes who insert the malicious models won’t check the source due to a lack of scripting knowledge, so the people who make backdoors can just make it open source and have nothing hurting them, except maybe having to take time to obfuscate their discord webhook.
This just hurts people, and frankly, it’s a useless removal. It solves NOTHING, and it’s just another bandaid patch by ROBLOX. As I said, I’ve been loving some of the newer updates, but not this.
