[Affected Services]
PlayOnline Viewer

[Important Update Details]
- Friend List security was strengthened to deal with an issue where certain messages were being illegally sent from users other than friends and group friends. We have also changed the "Let's be friends!" and "Would you like to join a friend group?" messages so that senders can no longer alter the text.

- A specific message will be displayed to users who have acquired PlayOnline IDs through the FINAL FANTASY XI 14-day free trial when they log into the PlayOnline Viewer after the free trial has ended. This message will display the number of days left that the account can be transferred to regular billing-based gameplay, and can also take users to the page where these procedures can be performed.

- An issue was addressed where under certain circumstances the PlayStation 2 HDD did not have enough disk space for FINAL FANTASY XI version updates. (PlayStation 2 only)
