    Is that ISO site safe to use now, or does it still seem like it has the same security issues? If it does is that chaos site safe to use or did that get hacked too?

    They have been hacked like 3 times now and in extremely short period of time between the hacks. It's safe to say their security is a potato.
    If you are still willing to use it, use a throwaway account.

    Is that Chaos site having the same security issues? Are there any other sites? Obviously I'm not expecting a link since it's against the rules. I do have a throwaway on both although I should probably change the email on that Chaos site to a temporary email domain.

    I just use CIAngel myself. I really don't use that iso site nor that chaos site anymore.

    CIAngel seems like it would be too easy to get a ban or worse if you're using it to download paid software. I know they don't see right away that you're pirating, but they'll probably take notice eventually if they have to review purchase information.

    You will not get banned for using ciangel, freeshop, or any other service like them. Nintendo normally only bans people playing games online before release, cheating online, or using public headers (something you only need to worry about with flashcarts and not CIAs.)

    They can't exactly tell your even playing the game per say, because they can't tell what client IP's own which games.

    They can only see if you directly connect in game, but in a .CIA your system header is kept private so they can't actually ban you because you look just like any other user to them.
    Plus bans are to the console, not the nnid, so that's a confirm that they don't check payment info. (This was proven because after a hyperban you could still log your nnid into a wiiu like normal)

    Yes, sun and moon as well as all bans, are to the console, not the nnid. Plus, you only got banned if you connected to online services of pokemon sun/moon before its release, and didn't get banned even if you were connected to the internet (ie: you got banned for doing something like wondertrade, but not banned for simply leaving WiFi on)
    After the release date, no one else got banned, even if they used the leaked version.

    I haven't heard of any news about that chaos site being hacked or anything like that, so for now I'd say it's safe, but it's always better to be safe than sorry yunno.

    That iso site most def is not safe to use anymore, just make junk accounts if you really need to go back there for something.

    Use cdn-fx if your paranoid, but if your installing games you don't own either way your game logs are passed along when you play them, including invalid titleID's used by home brew apps etc.....so far Nintendo doesn't seem to give two toots

    Hmm? I don't understand your English too well, but yes, that iso site was hacked awhile back and has been many times.
    Your password isn't public, but whoever got em has em, just change passwords on other accounts if they share the same password with the one from that iso site.

    Fair point, I meant for general use so you can avoid "that" site.

    Also you can't get .3ds format games from those tools or any tool that installs the game directly from the eShop. If you want it and if you don't, you have to find it out in the internet. But 3ds format games can be found in torrent sites that was my old method lmao
