As you can see in the latest dev blog it contains a letter from the CSM. Towards the end of the letter they invite you to talk with them via mumble.

Fireside Chat: Saturday, April 16th

We're going to be having a brief talk and a Q&A session at 20:00 EVE on Saturday, April 16th at the following address

public-mumble.goonfleet.com

Wiki article: https://wiki.goonfleet.com/MumblePublic

If you go there, your IP address will be harvested by goons who control the mumble.

Goons + Your RL Info = BAD!

Call me paranoid if you want, but it is for good reason. They have done it before. If CCP endorses a voice Q&A they should ensure that if anyone is hosting, it is CCP themselves.

You have been warned...

I appreciate the warning, but do you have a link, proof, or a piece of evidence to show that this has been done before?

You mean, the IP address that is actually dynamic for most users ?

"They have done it before" you go beyond paranoid and are actually crazy, you don't even say what they have done before, I'm assuming you've also been kidnapped by aliens.

YOUR COMPUTER IS BROADCASTING AN IP!!!!


Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa!


Seriously though, we aren't enforcing any requirements that log in into the Mumble server with any sort of identifying information other than your publicly available IP address. You can put whatever you want for a username, eg, "FuzzyPinkBear".

If you think that simply connecting to a service with your IP address opens you up to anything (beyond knowing what your IP is right that second) I'd suggest unplugging your computer and going outside forever.



Edit: Seriously, as was already pointed out, most IP addresses are dynamic. Even if the IP addresses weren't dynamic the most we'd know about your connection is you have an IP address. You don't have to give API information or a valid character name. There is no survey asking you for your home address and telephone number. The most we'd be able to gain is that somebody connected with that IP address. Information you can obtain from an IP include the ISP it's assigned to, a rough geographical location, and pretty much that's it. This information is available to any internet service you connect to, including these forums... It's not exactly an extreme security threat.

Edit Again: I can't spell.

In other news, never visit a Goon site and never open threads with hotlinked images hosted on a Goon site, because they will harvest your IP and sell it on the grey market !!!11111oneone.

I logged into a goon mumble yesterday and when I logged into my personal email account this morning I received a strange incomprehensible message. It read:

Oh give me a break Marconus... are you serious?

OH MY GOD you're on Windows and Microsoft has your IP!!!! =eyeroll=

I might be anti goons moreso than most, but even *THIS* claim is totally outrageous. Go back to your cave, Trollicus.Rolling Eyes

a) You have a signature

From that i deduce:
b) You probably have "show forum signatures" enabled

c) Forum Signatures can contain images

d) Those images are hosted on a webserver which usually logs IP addresses

e) Goons who have images in their signatures already know your IP address

f) This is nothing to worry about

Hello Arlington Virginia, your on the air.

All I am saying is the voice program should not be hosted by anyone other than CCP. Ask yourself why goons are fighting so hard to want to be the ones hosting it. Wink

Just in case anyone is dumb enough to actually try something to that IP without first checking what IP range that is, it's the Pentagon.

Found it with a quick google search, so i wouldn't call it classified.

Have you used eve voice for large groups of people? It's painful.

Fireside chat - the new CSM - hosted on a goon channel... no offense but ya that shows no obvious slant to the new CSM. CCP events up til now have been in Eve Voice. Problem? Not the best certainly but with all the talk of goons taking over CSM this is pretty dumb politically. The more things like this happen the more only goons will pay any attention to the CSM. Sorry but that is obvious.
