Well, it's back as "A Realm Reborn," and already it's had severe server issues that caused them to stop selling the game. It's also back with a SQL server that allows unauthenticated SQL commands to be run directly. Yes, that's right: the game's Lua scripting can execute SQL commands directly on the MMO's database servers, including update commands. As you'd expect, this is leading to rampant cheating and item duping.
