Due to the overwhelming abuse of misconfigured Wingate, Socks and Proxy servers being exploited daily, the WikkedWire network is now checking all users upon connection to every one of our servers.

Once connected to our network, a check is done once. This should not be considered an attack on your system, it is only reported if you are running an insecure proxy.

Be aware that this sort of connection to your system is probably common if you use services such as free IRC networks, game servers, and any other online service.
If you do not wish to be portscanned, please do not connect to our network.
