    Today we were made aware of an exploit that was discovered. The way this was done was by using at least permits together with a feature that can only be done using packets. When it comes to permits, there's a lot of things I wanted do with it years ago. The issue right now with Permits in MapleLegends is that they offer absolutely no benefit on why you should open them versus Hired Merchants. On the top of that, they were need of a re-code for a really long time (as much as a lot of this ancient code have to be, unfortunately). After this exploit came into light we have completely blocked 1 method that was used to exploit it, which again, could only be done with a packet editor. To be extra safe we've also decided to block Permits for now, due to their niche use and because we feel they are currently not fit with our current standards. Basically, its extremely underused on the top of them being an easy target for critical exploits.

    Even though the way those exploits get delivered to us could be better, I still want to thank the person for letting us know about it anyway, it is appreciated.

    EDIT: Lastly, I want to mention if you do find the person responsible for showcasing the exploit outside of anything from MapleLegends to not harass them or anything. It doesn't help the situation and may discourage them from doing so in the future.

    with regular permits you can't see what others said in the shop before the moment you entered it.
    on the seller side you couldnt see the sold items in the summary window too

    Permits had 1 advantage if you have a solid connection and are too lazy to reset your store. You can leave them on for more than 24 hours

    Well, three. That, and also they could be opened in smaller spaces than a Merchant NPC, and they could vend 20 items instead of 16.

    I liked them, but if there's exploits then yea, disable is best ; c

    You can probably make a thread under character issues and try to ask for a NX refund! Not promising that they will but it's worth a shot
