Sneaky bug to duplicate points

Recommended Posts

Hi @Kevin Carwile,

Some of our suers have been duplicating their points by taking advantage of an issue where points can be transferred twice within a single page load.

See the screenshot as an example:


I also have a video which I will PM you now, demonstrating how its done.

My understanding is that when you transfer funds to a "bank" it isn't processed until page load is complete? rather than immediately? And therefore you can try and force a few transfers within that page load period. I may be way off in my guess on how it occurs, but hopefully the information I have provided is helpful.

I haven't had any updates regarding this.

I think a current solution is to disable the use of banks, as the exploit is done using that feature.


I sent Kevin a video of how to reproduce the exploit.

Yea, it would be nice to get a reply.  I wonder if he's giving up on his apps.  He responded "No" to someone in another thread who asked him about an update to Automation Rules.

Glad I didn't start using this app.  Might go with the other points app Members Shop.  I don't like the idea of the developer not even responding to a thread about an issue.

The Points Economy application has been removed from the Marketplace!! :( :( It is now even not like "This file is not currently available for purchase.", but it is not existing anymore! https://invisioncommunity.com/files/file/7911-points-economy/

Another excellent application has been abandoned by Kevin. That's very bad :( :(

But I do believe that the merging with Miller Media is a positive step for the life of these products.

Unfortunatelly NOT :(
