The TeamSpeak Team would like to thank you all for your overwhelming response to our anti-piracy initiative. We are pleased to announce that as a result of your ongoing efforts to help us identify illegal TeamSpeak hosters we have compiled a list of known illegal TeamSpeak hosters that will be posted for public viewing via our Hosters & Renting page. With the release of this list, it is our goal to increase consumer awareness to ultimately eliminate any possibility of TeamSpeak piracy, giving our legally licensed customers the business and recognition that they deserve.
This list will obviously be an ongoing work in progress, so we encourage you all to continue notifying us of any witnessed illegal activity via our piracy email address .
Please keep in mind that due to the volume of emails received our piracy team generally will not respond to your emails unless additional information is required. With that said, be assured that every email we receive will be properly investigated and that appropriate action will be taken.
In addition to the list, each Authorized TeamSpeak Host Provider (ATHP) can now link directly to a unique, static page on the Hosters & Renting area. Simply search for your company name on the Hosters & Renting page, click on your company in the search results, and the web address will reflect your company's unique URL that you can link to from your site to show your customers that your company is in fact an ATHP.
Again, we thank you all for your hard work as your contributions and dedication have helped make this project possible.
The TeamSpeak Team has begun a new anti-piracy initiative to warn, try to work with, and in the worst case scenario ban illegal hosters and TeamSpeak servers. If you are hosting TeamSpeak illegally, and you do not try to make contact with our sales department via , we will eventually track you and ban your servers.
Unfortunately this issue has existed for a long time and we promise to all paying and licensed customers that we will continue to work hard and eventually track and stop all illegal hosters. Thank you for your attention to this matter. If you have any specific questions please address them to .
Got questions about licensing in general? Are you part of a clan or guild and not sure if you need to pay? Please be sure to read through our FAQ before you send us your inquiry via email. If you still have questions we will be more than happy to assist you.

In early June 2004, many users within the TeamSpeak community informed us of a possible virus issue - specifically with the keypress.dll file which is installed by the TeamSpeak 2 client.
Since we were informed of this issue the TeamSpeak Team has been heavily involved in trying to determine the accuracy of this claim. After rigorous internal testing and numerous phone calls into all of the major antivirus companies including Symantec (Norton AntiVirus), Network Associates (McAfee VirusScan) and Trend Micro, NONE of these companies can verify NOR deny that a virus actually exists in keypress.dll.
To the best of our collective knowledge, it is so far more likely that this is a false positive - meaning that the antivirus application is finding data in keypress.dll that LOOKS like the same sort of data found in an infected file containing the Trojan "PWS-Wexd" (virus)... even though the file is most likely not infected at all.
If you are still truly concerned that this may actually be a virus, please try visiting the following link:
This URL contains detailed information on the PWS-Wexd Trojan, including a section on indications of infection - which we have meticulously verified so far do NOT exist on anyone's supposed infected computer.
At this time we have put together a new TeamSpeak client installation executable.
Simply shutdown your TeamSpeak 2 client if it is running and re-install TeamSpeak using the new executable right on top of your existing installation and the problem should go away. It is NOT necessary to first uninstall your existing TeamSpeak client and you will also NOT lose your current address book and other client settings.
It is our every intent to resolve matters such as these in a timely manner... and with as much information to validate a working solution as possible. We want to thank you for your patience as we work through this issue.
