Lisa, Please stop using Scalaxy/Ispiria as your web host. 3dxchat login IP 5.61.57.85 (Netherlands) has a history of spam/abuse.

3dxchat uses a combination of Cloudflare, Scalaxy, & Ispiria Network Solutions.

The Cloudflare (USA) IP addresses are totally fine: 172.67.216.164, 104.26.1.90, 104.18.60.31

However, hackers are still able to freely access and DDOS attack: 5.61.57.85 (Scalaxy, Ispiria web host, Netherlands). This is the IP used to login to the game.

Let's do some research on IP 5.61.57.85 - https://ipinfo.io/5.61.57.85 , which is associated with:  ispiria.netscalaxy.com

Scalaxy has a bad reputation: https://scamalytics.com/ip/isp/scalaxy-b-v

  • "Scalaxy B.V. is a high fraud risk ISP. They operate 6,136 IP addresses, almost all of which are running servers and anonymizing VPNs. They manage IP addresses for organisations including 3NT Solutions LLP, Internet Tekhnologii LLC, and ISPIRIA Networks Ltd. Scamalytics see low levels of traffic from this ISP across our global network, most of which is fraudulent. We apply a risk score of 82/100 to Scalaxy B.V., meaning that of the traffic where we have visibility, 82% is suspected to be fraudulent."

Try visiting Ispiria or Scalaxy's web site. If you click Contact or Support, it doesn't show anyway to contact them, they're dead links.  There's no phone number or anything.  That's the sign of a terrible, cheap web host. That's your first problem. Web hosts like these are prone to hackers and DDOS attacks, because they're too cheap to get proper security which costs $$$.

Doing a google search of IP 5.61.57.85, shows it has a history of problems:

https://www.google.com/search?q=5.61.57.85

The IP 5.61.57.85 has a history of being used by forum spammers: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ktsaou/blocklist-ipsets/master/stopforumspam_180d.ipset (look up 5.61.57.85 in this list)

My recommendation is to call Cloudflare and ask them what web hosts they recommend; who can prevent DDOS attacks. They might be able to recommend a reputable web host in Netherlands.

I hope the network/developer of 3dxchat sees this:

1. Your server should only communicate with Cloudflare IP addresses. That means the only IP addresses that are allowed to connect to it are from Cloudflare.  Your server should have a hardware based firewall that rejects traffic from any other IP address other than Cloudflare.
2. 3dxchat client should only communicate with Cloudflare IP addresses.  You can use Comodo to monitor 3dxchat IP address usage to ensure only Cloudflare IP addresses are being used.

The whole idea is that your server only accepts traffic from Cloudflare, and 3dxchat only connects to Cloudflare.  Cloudflare is the gateway, the gate keeper.

If this is legit, it really shouldn't have been posted publicly.

You're missing the point. The information is public already.  If I could get it, ANYONE can get it. It's extremely easy to monitor 3dxchat to see what IP addresses it connects to.

OK so someone in the company has to be providing information to the people who are messing with the system......

The bad rep and the history is likely because people hosted by them are doing naughty things, not that the host itself is vulnerable.

You are right though, that a game that has reached this level shouldn't still be hosted by a dime a dozen web provider.

They posted that they're moving datacenters. If true, then hopefully this info is already out of date and not representative of the current hosting situation.

Edit: I meant a different kind of naughty lol.

This should not be directed at Lisa.  She is just the designer of poses and such.

Direct it at SexGameDevil / 3DXChat.

I thought Lisa is like the liaison between us and SexGameDevil/3DXChat. You wouldn't happen to know how to contact the devs by any chance?

All I can tell you is go to the SexGameDevil or 3DXChat website and look for "Contact".
