DayZ Character Wipes

The DayZ Forums announce patch #2 is now live in the standalone version of DayZ, the zombie game which has become wildly successful in the brief time since its early access release (thanks IncGamers). The patch addresses a security issue that has also prompted a full character wipe, and Bohemia Interactive warns that this may not be the only time this happens during testing:

Important updates like this WILL attract database wipes during the alpha process. We apologize for the inconvenience but I am sure everyone can agree, it is not fair to keep going with the bad data and some of the unfinished items were spawned in game - which could cause crashes and other issues thus confusing our alpha testing. Many people were experiencing crashes relating to these items that had been created in the game.

I realize this is a little vague, but its our policy to be suitably vague about specifics regarding implemented security measures.

A buddy and I were playing nice yesterday, teamed up with some other players we came across randomly. There's obviously an uneasiness on both sides, especially when guns are involved, but we got along for half an hour or so running around and looting. Made our way to Zelenogorsk, and we had just finished looting the new miitaru barracks there and the grocery store. Found a water well and decided to drink and fill our bottles... I guess the one guy still with us saw an opportunity with our guards down (weapons unequipped) and crouched right next to each other, and POW POW POW blew us away, lol.

On the bright side, bullet trauma often ruins most of what otherwise would be lootable on a person, so I doubt he got away with much. But that kind of betrayal from a guy who was literally 30 seconds before chatting away with us... It's the kind of thing that turns you to the shoot first, ask no questions mentality.
