Hi,

An unsubscribed user was able to view game details (including ports) for a subscriber-only game, having been given the link.

And given that it's very easy to enumerate forthcoming games by their sequence number, effectively there's nothing to stop anyone reading any game details.

Should this be changed please?

Thanks
Jamie

Perhaps I misunderstand - Isn't this why people write "TBD" or "TBA" in the fields before a game starts? And then, even then, couldn't you host a private Simsig game without sharing the connection details on this website?

Then it would be pointless to have private games and being able to subscribe to people for that reasoning.

As people's IP addresses may change before the game starts, or they don't want people connecting until the host is ready.

For me, it's the latter as I don't want people connecting until I know that I'm ready to accept connections and everything is working as it should be - I don't see the point in people rushing to connect and I then find a issue which I need to sort out before I can accept connections.
