Guys, I am a Certified Computer Doctor, and I have figured it all out! CCP is now mining cryptocurrency on our machines! It’s true! I did some sleuthing around in my Windows-brand operating system, and found a “cryptopp.dll” file right inside the EVE launcher folder! And it’s a fresh file that was created today, when the patch was released! This also explains why my CPU usage shoots up considerably when I launch an EVE client, and why anti-virus programs think that EVE is a malicious program!
This makes a lot of sense. With the player count plummeting as it is because CCP has implemented scarcity and drove all of the hard-working, honest space citizens away from their employment simulator, they must be getting hit hard in the pocketbook. So it totally makes sense that CCP would try to earn money on the side by making our computers mine dog coins or whatever it is the teenagers are into these days.
As a Certified Internet Attorney, I recommend that we launch a class-action lawsuit against CCP immediately to collect on damages done to our computers by overloading our cooling fans with extra work, and any additional electricity expenses we have incurred from their crypto-mining malware!
