This version of the Evolve client patches a vulnerability discussed earlier this week against Address Resolution Protocol (ARP).

The patch in the 1.8.13 combats this in the following ways:

  • Bad ARP packets are now blocked
  • Users attempting to conduct ARP poisoning will be flagged by the system and all future packets from them (ARP or not) are blocked
  • Other party attendees will be notified that an ARP poisoning attempt is being made. Party creators can ban users from their parties. We encourage you to report hackers to Evolve.
