Commanders!

 

In the last couple of days we have received reports from players about the following issue:

 

During random battles a player posts a TeamSpeak server address to have others join up so they may better coordinate. In some reported cases the player will receive a pop-up, seemingly from TeamSpeak, asking him to download the “new HD sound drivers” or some other seemingly legitimate piece of software, but it actually is a Trojan file.

 

We would like to remind you not to download anything that may seem slightly suspicious. Nowadays most windows systems will update the drivers for you or if you have a highly specialised hardware (that windows won’t update for you) it is unlikely you will get automated prompts from the software itself. Whenever connecting to a TS server offered by a third party, never download anything it asks you to from the given link. If you DO need to download anything for TeamSpeak, the only official source is: http://www.teamspeak.com/downloads
