Alright guys I think we all know this thread is firstly in the wrong place, and secondly is only going to cause drama. I don't know if any other moderators are already looking into this thread or not, so rather than delete it I'm just going to move it to off-topic. At least this way one of the 2 issues is officially resolved.
As for the drama part, without speaking to other mods first I wouldn't want to just close or delete this thread. I may have a way to give each "side" a bit of credit, to help round out the edges and help smooth things out a bit.
The svc host program people are referring to is one that Sam actually admitted he created. It was on page 12 of the redspot topic, and I'll quote part of it here where Sam sums it up. Keep in mind that this was posted way back in June of 2016, so none of this is "new" news.
Hi. Ok, time to set things strate. First, let's not have this topic turn into a drama imblazened mess. This SVCHost thing ivan is talking about does exist, one of the most stupid things i've made that doesn't even exist anymore. I did some really dumb things with it that I can't take back now, most of it way in the passed. If you guys want, i'll even post loads of recordings just so you can see how much of an idiot I was in those years. I wasn't originally going to say this and none of you believe ivan, but you deserve to know anyway. It was a really bad script that could do all sorts of dumb shit. It's gone now, but yeah. Back in 2014 before I could use my programming power maturely, I did all this shit, similar to what ivan did. I never stole anything, but it was similar. I hope i've shown though by my games and just generally me that i've moved on from that shit. The script doesn't even exist anymore. It was a lot of personal crap that went on, thus why none of you guys heard about it. I'd rather not go into it though. I regret what I did, but it's to late to take it back now. I'm expecting everyone to be pissed at me, but what ever. I've been considering posting a topic about it, because it's been a wait on my chest sence 2014, and I wish it would go away. Again everything I did was purely personal and didn't really do much, never stole one line of source code or data, but honestly. If I could take it all back? I would. I would have said something before if it wasn't that this was all personal shit that went on, but again. I don't know what the hell the response to this hole thing is going to be, but i'm sick of holding this shit all inside anyway. If you guys want more information about what went on, let's just make like, a skype group or something, ok? This is a game topic, not a let's throw shit at people topic.
So yes SVChost is a normal windows process, but also yes Sam did create a script of the same name meant to gain access to other people's computers. Both sides in this thread have truth to them so there is no need to mock or dismiss anyone here quite yet. I know I haven't done a good job of really ending the discussion in here, but people tend to be more calm and respectful when they can see where the other side is coming from. Lets keep things civil please.
P.S. My stepping in doesn't mean another mod won't close or delete this topic. I was just passing through, so I don't know what may be being decided by other mods at this time. Keeping things civil and having a respectful and rational discussion from here on out can only help things though, so I do hope that is what happens. Take care.
