I thought I would ignore what everybody has been telling me on this forum for the last six months and buy the SeaWolves Mediterrainean addon!
When I ran it from the DVD onto my computer I got the message from my spyware that I had a trojan!
The said trojan was entitled "BigBrother" which I propmply deleted along with this Med' addon.
Did anybody else have this spyware too contend with?

Hmmm, certainly makes you think.
I'd be asking for my money back, and probably hitting them up for cleaning your hdd.
Very sorry to hear about it, I hope it didn't cause you too many hassles. If you need to mod, myself or others here would happily snail-mail you the GW disc, plus other add-ons like commander v 2.6 etc
Yep, ask for your money back, or an exchange, then scan the disc for viruses before installing

This parasite is a destructive trojan with several features, which make it possible to steal user's confidential data and passwords. If no actions against this pest are taken as soon as possible, various negative effects (such as system instability, the loss of performance, slowdown, crashes, etc.) can occur.

Big Brother properties:
€ Hides from the user
€ Stays resident in background


RAT : A Remote Administration Tool, or RAT, is a Trojan that when run, provides an attacker with the capability of remotely controlling a machine via a ""client"" in the attacker's machine, and a ""server"" in the victim's machine. Examples include Back Orifice, NetBus, SubSeven, and Hack'a'tack. What happens when a server is installed in a victim's machine depends on the capabilities of the trojan, the interests of the attacker, and whether or not control of the server is ever gained by another attacker -- who might have entirely different interests. Infections by remote administration Trojans on Windows machines are becoming as frequent as viruses. One common vector is through File and Print Sharing, when home users inadvertently open up their system to the rest of the world. If an attacker has access to the hard-drive, he/she can place the trojan in the startup folder. This will run the trojan the next time the user logs in. Another common vector is when the attacker simply e-mails the trojan to the user along with a social engineering hack that convinces the user to run it against their better judgment.

I dont know of anyone else who bought it. I have to be honest, i was cynical about the whole expansion and now im even moreso.

Just hope you manage to get everything cleaned up asap.

I would like to return to this topic!
What they did to me was place spyware in my computer as Bunkerrat said to monitor what sites I hit and to see what mods I was running and hack them as well! Lol.
Well nobody from SeaWolves has replied to my allegations yet and I don't suppose they ever will.
You can keep the 12,99 you cheap skates! Buy yourself a copy of GreyWolves, Oh sorry I forgot its free!

Thank you, you just made my day. I will break out my 1.75 liter bottle of Jack Daniel's and drink to that. I'd share, but you're not nextdoor. But I will toast to you. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/partyhat.gif
