Answer from: knowitall
It is probably a remote griefing exploit, where a player uses a tool to somehow get your IP in-game from a status packet content, or via traffic analysis. Then using your IP address, he sends a poisonous packet to your machine that confuses the mechwarrior client. I never saw it ever, and I have a very very very clean windows 7 machine, but now i see it a lot sometimes. So far it happened 3 times total in my life, but all three tonight. There are many books you can buy in 2013 on "Fuzzing". Fuzzing is where a evil hacker uses a tool to automate hunting for remote crashing exploits for later usage. The alternative is studying disassembly of the code (equally difficult). It is also trivial using metasploit tools to fake origin of ip packet sent to a target and if needed, a fuzzing tool might impersonate the MAIN ACTIVE SERVER. There are many things to think about, but I bet it is a griefing exploit. If not, it is a angry pal of the company, or a rep of the company itself. I am GLAD i have not yet paid money to mechwarrior online, and if this happens more, I probably will not.
