Greetings CABAL Online Players,

We would like to advise everyone the dangers of using “Illegal Third Party Programs.” An illegal third party program is any program created and distributed by someone other than ESTsoft Inc. that is used to alter, cheat or modify ESTsoft Inc. games.

• Programs that enhance players abnormally.
• Programs that modify or create items, units and/or user interface.
• Programs that disconnects other players from the game or cause game crashes.
• Automation Programs.

The use of illegal third party programs is not allowed on CABAL Online. The use of such programs may result in the loss of your items, characters and accounts or even the permanent closure of your CABAL Online Accounts. Other risks involve:

• Account and password theft.
• Access to your account and be able to delete, steal or modify your items and/or characters.
• Access your account keeping you from being able to stay connected to the game.
• Can also break the Terms of Service and cause restrictions to be placed on your account.
• Illegal third party programs can hinder the game from working correctly, or make it impossible to connect to the game.
• Illegal third party programs may also contain Trojan Horse Viruses and/or back-door programs that can grant hackers the ability to remove or manipulate data on your computer remotely and without your knowledge.

Any kind of illegal third party program may carry a code to do any of the above. Also, be wary of any website that prompts you to enter your CABAL Online Account Name and Password. Non-Official-CABAL-Online website asking for this information may attempt to hi-jack your account.

How can you protect your computer/account?
Make sure you never install anything for the game that doesn’t come in the form of an official update from ESTsoft Inc. If you’ve downloaded and/or installed any illegal third party program, we strongly recommend scanning your computer for any key logger or virus and taking the necessary steps to secure the safety of your account.

Password and Sub-Password:
Please frequently change and update your password and sub-password. Please also use a password that contains Capital Letters, Numbers and Special Characters to increase the security of your account.

Antivirus Software:
An Antivirus Software scans your computer’s memory and storage space to identify and eliminate viruses.

Firewall Software:
A security system intended to protect a computer or network of computers against threats. A firewall can prevent your computer from communicating directly with computers outside your network and vice versa. While this does provide added system security it can affect connections made with our game.

Computer Updates:
Ensure that you have the most recent security and service packs installed. These can help greatly by fixing security risks and updating built in security software such as the Windows Firewall to decrease possible threats to your machine. You can find these easily by visiting the Microsoft Windows Update page.

Anti-spyware Software:
Anti-spyware Software scans your computer’s storage space and services to identify and eliminate programs designed to monitor your computer usage beyond your acceptance. Among many technical issues spyware may also cause crashing and connection issues.

In an effort to preserve an enjoyable and fair experience for all players, we constantly monitor CABAL Online for exploitative activity. Accounts found to be participating in this behavior are promptly suspended or closed. We strive to protect our players from the negative effects of such actions.
