Hi all, this post isnt a particular technical post, but more of a thank you post.
I wish to thank all those that have participated in this project, and have made it so successfull.
I have recieved news, that Buddy Spy has won two awards on http://www.softpedia.com.
A 5/5 Editors Pick, also the 100% clean award, meaning no viruses,adware,spyware.
So again, Thank you all for lending a hand!December 16, 2004 at 8:47 am #106608takagenMember
wow thatz cool. Keep up the good job…
N I found out 1 of the reason why some people can't login even when no firewall is there.
For case in Windows XP, if under Regional and Language Options, the language selected is not English (ie. some other unicode language like Jap), u will have the problem of logging in. Try changing back to English, it should work.
Is this due to some unicode problem?December 17, 2004 at 7:13 pm #106565kimmyMember
What should happen when I choose to send an im to a buddy? I left click on a buddy and choose send message, but nothing happens.December 19, 2004 at 4:58 pm #106626alt_DJParticipant
I've downloaded your latest version but having problem installing it.. midway during the installation process I keep getting the message
Module c:Program FilesBuddy Spyymsgpackets.dll failed to register. HRESULT-2147023739.December 20, 2004 at 11:50 am #106627BeGoneMember
this “buddy scan” exploit is quite old. I remember eric aka internetprogramer doing it about a year or so ago. not only that but the “stealthing” packet in the 6.0 messenger can also be used as a scan packet.
does buddy scan tell the user what protocol the buddy is using tho?
if you understand the p2p packet well enough you can tell if the user is on ymsg, chat2/dhtml, or web messenger. as far as I know it CANNOT detect users in java tho.
just some ideas.December 21, 2004 at 1:48 pm #106566kimmyMember
Would you eventually be able to come up with something that detects a buddy's aliases? Or who they are chatting if not in a room but privately?December 21, 2004 at 2:52 pm #106453SashaaMember
I have a friend who when online and showing as online on the yahoo messenger list, doesnt show as online on the Buddy Spy.
I did once get the ID to show as online, but it also showed everyone else as online so couldnt tell which were false readings.
I have tried all combinations. I get the same result on the previous Buddy Spy version also with this persons ID. Could this maybe be because the person logged on invisible ? Or is it just Yahoo. Or has this person worked out a way to beat Buddy Spy.
Any suggestions?December 21, 2004 at 4:09 pm #106580aneagleParticipant
I got the same problem and already suggested a solution in my previous post. The accuracy depends on whether the timeout preset in buddyspy is long enough or not to make sure that it doesn't miss any return packet. The delay in getting a return packet depends on the latency of the network and the response time of yahoo server.
In my case, for the East Coast morning time, only 20% of the scans are good if the timeout preset is 1 second, 90% of the scans are good if the timeout preset is 5 seconds.December 22, 2004 at 1:13 pm #106454SashaaMember
It only happens with this one person's ID.
It never shows as online with either of the 2 Buddy Spy programs I have, even though the person is clearly showing on my messenger list and I am talking to them. Every other ID I have on Buddy Spy shows as online at sometime, even if wrongly.
Still stumped.December 22, 2004 at 2:45 pm #106581aneagleParticipant
Try to scan in single ID mode and see if you get accurate result.December 22, 2004 at 5:52 pm #106559trust_no_1711Member
I was wondering the same as kimmy, is there a way of detecting aliases and are you planning on adding this feature in?
thnksDecember 22, 2004 at 6:26 pm #106464
Like aneagle has stated, alot of buddy spy's accuracy depends on network latency.
I am on DSL w/ 1.5 down 512 up. My results tend to be around 80% accurate.
As for kimmy's question, when I find a working alias checking method, yes it will be implimented.
I am currently working on 2.1.5, it will be the last release of 2.1.
And I will then continue working on 2.2, which will have more of the options that people posted on here, editing time outs, a time based interval scan.
In other news, I was alerted to a ripper, although that comes when you release the source, as much as you hope that it wont.. It always happens, its just the way of things…
“Mani” has released BuddyOnline.. Which for all accounts and purposes is Buddy Spy 2.1 under a new name, with nothing changed but the “Author”
And the banner.
Although, I have tried to use the program it does not work for me, as the idiot didnt include the .dll files…December 22, 2004 at 8:05 pm #106449DaJMan1800MemberQuote:quote:

Haha… well we all know who has the better BuddySpy. I think I'll give Mani a piece of my mind…January 3, 2005 at 3:53 pm #106466
I will be releasing 2.1.5 within a few days, I had a few family emergencies, sorry for the delay..
One of my fellow Yahoo! programmers is also working on Providing me an update with a lot of the features, I havent had a time to get to. So hopefully that will be coming shortly.
Secondly, I have started on 2.2.
I hope to include a different set of languages, are there any translators?January 3, 2005 at 6:54 pm #106628venikMember
Tried to use 2.14 under Windows 2000. I get the SAME response to every scan: it seems that EVERYONE is on line, even when I KNOW that they are not. Under Chatroom it says for EVERYONE: Scanning… Even when I know that someone is in some chatroom. So far the program did not tell me anything new, and in fact told me many lies. What am I doing wrong?
