I have had moments where I was attacked by another player somehow. One instance was where I was standing at OA grid, I am on my enforcer, doing nothing. Let me clarify by what nothing is, self buffed, no auras, not buffing anyone, not clicking anything, not looking at anything, not hitting my keyboard, I am literally AFK/alt tabbed at OA grid. I was also doing nothing prior to going AFK at OA grid, I wasn’t fighting guards, mobs, leets, see the previous sentence on the clarification of nothing. Then I hear audio of me being attacked so I alt tab back wondering WTF and sure enough I am being attacked by another player.
The chance that this person used an alien probe on me is highly unlikely. Why waste something like that (that is if anyone still has any) on something so unimportant.
A similar thing happened prior to this experience but I was AFK the entire time and when I came back I looked at logs and noticed I was attacked at some point so I cant confirm or deny that I may have done something prior to AFKing. However, I am leaning more towards that someone exploited both of these times to flag other players, ideally AFK players, to get an easy kill.
