Getting date and time from internet

Hi guys, How do I get the current time and date from the internet?

 

I'm aware that inside ActionScript there's a Date() function , but it only get the date inside the device, and sometimes user might change the device's date in order to overcome time-based games.

Re: Getting date and time from internet

You have to call to your server (some added script) that can return the date on the server and then adjust for time zone. Since the time zone the user is in might be different then the time zone of the server.
