Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Oz Linden, Technical Director for the Second Life platform at Linden Lab, has issued a blog post indicating the  Android client “IM To SecondLife” has been blocked from accessing Second Life.

While no specifics have obviously been given, the blog post notes the reason for the blocking is due to the committing “serious violations of the Policy on Third Party Viewers relating to user account security and user privacy.”

The blog post goes on to provide direct security advice for users who may have downloaded and made use of “IM to SecondLife”:

If you have ever used that viewer, Linden Lab strongly suggests that you secure your Second Life account, beginning with updating your password on the Second Life account page:

We may need to temporarily hold some accounts in connection with this incident. Please ensure that your contact information is up to date and verify your email address:
