Following reports of its Eve Online client source code appearing on torrent tracking sites, developer CCP has put out a statement to calm information privacy worries, asserting that access to the source code should not impose any security risks to players or the game. "CCP is aware that an individual claims to have access to the source code of the EVE client. This access is not a security risk to CCP in any way," CCP told Slashdot. Though the science fiction-themed MMORPG records customers' billing information, the "server-side interface" is safeguarded so that it never transmits personal or abusive data. CCP added, "Nothing the EVE client can do can affect the game state, no advantage can be gained by manipulating the EVE client, no advantageous or disadvantageous information can be transmitted to other EVE users by altering the EVE client," added the company. CCP declined to comment on how the source code could have been made available to the public.
