Hardcore Games™ has been in operation in one form or another for a very long time. We started off as a news letter, later we operated a BBS system before moving to a web site in the mid 1990s where we have remained ever since.
Java is different and we do not use that programming environment. It has been recognized as a security risk. Java is used by some online games. The security problems arise from the browser extensions.
Our web server also keeps a log of every request whether it’s a valid request or not. We periodically examine the logs to identify miscreants who desire to break into the server(s). Sadly miscreants use mechanized systems to attempt to hack into servers where they can then spread malware. We have taken many steps to protect the server so that legitimate users can enjoy the service(s) safely.
