@nctarheel, what you’ve identified appears to be a bug within the top position on the leaderboard. As I mentioned earlier, we’ve also noticed this scoring oddity and are working to get it resolved as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your diligence. We will continue to post updates as they’re available.

WARNING!!!!!

 

It seems that AARP has no interest in protecting its games platform. The player that supposedly posted a score over 4 MIILLION has now posted a score, overnight, of:

 

                                      655,359,000

 

Folks, that is just impossible and AARP seems to not be concerned.

 

Make sure your virus protection and malware protection is up to date when using this games site because that score above was posted using NEFARIOUS MEANS.

 

There would be no other way to score that high.

 

@AARPLynne  needs to address this issue expeditiously.

 

Who knows how safe the platform is when someone can post an impossible score through some unknown means as has been done here.

It has been two weeks and now I notice additional issues with the scoring for the Blackjack game.

 

There was a high score of 300,000+ in the lead as far as this week's high score and the monthly high scores.

 

TWO PEOPLE have now added scores in the MILLIONS on the same day. That day was yesterday, 12/12/2018.

 

That 300,000+ score has disappeared. 

 

I am feeling that the games platform is being hacked as the previous score in the BILLIONS was impossible and now, the two scores, on the same day, in the MILLIONS, is unlikely.

 

The disappearance of the 300,000+ score also calls the security of the games platform into question.

Thank you for your response.

 

Please let the community know if this was a hacking incident that could affect our computers and what's on them.

 

For a user to be able to input what I would consider an impossible score, it may have been done by nefarious means.

 

This type of thing has happened before with the old version of 5 ROLL. If you got the best score for every box on the scorecard for 5 ROLL, I believe the total couldn't be any more than about 6,600 points. For a time, there were users that were inputting scores of 44,000, 51,000, and 63,000 and above. The issue was resolved but AARP was very secretive on what caused the issue.

 

I hope you are more transparent this time.

 

Now that I read that another user is getting your emails, my concern is further raised that something is out of whack with more than the games platform.

That ONE BILLION score.... I miscalculated.

 

IT IS 2,000 times higher than the next higher score.

 

But, as predicted, NO ONE at AARP will even look at it.

 

It is obvious that their gaming platform has some hacking issue as scoring 2,000 times the next highest score is virtually impossible.

Take BLACKJACK for example.

 

Look at the high scores for the month.

 

The second highest score is in the 500,000's. I assume that is an attainable score if you keep winning and doubling your bets at the right time.

 

BUT LOOK AT THE #1 SCORE, MY FRIENDS.

 

It is OVER 1 BILLION. That's right, BILLION with a B.

 

THAT'S OVER 1,000 TIMES THE SECOND HIGHEST SCORE!!!!!

 

Impossible.

 

But I bet AARP will not even take a look at it.

There is one player that scored over 4 MILLION on BLACKJACK two days ago and has now scored over 2 MILLION again today.

 

IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!!

 

There are no other players even close to either of those figures. This player seems to have hacked AARP'S GAMES PLATFORM.

 

AARP needs to investigate this as soon as possible as these possible hacks could affect other user's computers.
