Today come to me an report when a user was making mass spam via Mail to a lot of players, so i start checking and this is what i find.

After do:


The result was more than 8K rows all send by the same guid id, so, i think, how is tihs possible? after check the related account inside, there is no macros, only one player lvl 2, with no friends added.

Any idea?

What about an addon? If you're not using warden then it isn't difficult to write an addon to auto-mail.

Note: I don't know how to use warden so can't help you there.

Maybe a check in user send mail for friendship? all the emails was send to a non friend.

There are legitimate addons that spam mails to certain groups (think mail assistance addons). You'll probably have to write something custom, as I very much doubt this was an 'exploit' at retail

I think this is no longer possible with @jackpoz's mitigation commits.

CMSG_SEND_MAIL should be added to https://github.com/TrinityCore/TrinityCore/blob/3.3.5/src/server/game/Server/WorldSession.cpp#L1368 with a low value, anyway it will still allow any player to send at least 1 mail each second, so 86400 emails a day
