PSA: Brickers Abound

warning.png
Just a short Public Service Announcement for our users, particularly the ones who like their Homebrew on Nintendo platforms. The Homebrew community tends to be positive and participating in it is a recipe for a good time, but no group of people is free of bad actors with too much time on their hands. We have reason to believe that in the near future we'll see a lot of suspicious uploads of innocent-looking applications that are actually concealed console brickers and viruses. We came across a disconcerting threat against our site, among others, made by a Wii malware creator.

The safety of our users is our number one priority, so we strongly urge forum-goers to be weary of applications uploaded to the site recently, particularly if they come from relatively new accounts. We apologise for this inconvenience, but sadly there is little we can do besides staying vigilant and dealing swiftly with any and all suspicious content.

Stay safe, and keep on Tempin'!

THANK YOU.:)

I could not imagine that there really are those assholes who want to screw up the joy of our old but beloved Wii.

Sorry for this untypical expression but I'm really pissed off on these guys.:angry:

lol xD why go after the wii ... so you are targeting people who still use the wii , but have to hack it and use new files you are uploading (is there anything still being updated for the wii ? lol like just block new files for wii xD ) .... the pool of potential user they are trying to reach is kinda small xD

Please look and read through the Wii hacking Forum,there are daily Threads and Posts and many questions about Modding the Wii.
Enough "Customers" would I say.:)

Is only the Wii affected?
We can't be sure, there's a number of brickers out there that could be concealed with the software they apparently developed, so everyone should be on their toes for now and avoid downloading and installing unverified software from unofficial sources.

Yes, only download from official Github. Really sad that there are people out to brick consoles.
