WARNING
« on: June 11, 2018, 01:34:41 PM »
Since a few days ago some hacker named "pintero piezo" started using a flaw that disconnects all the players from the server... and then other hackers starting using the same flaw at 24/7 office and 24/7 as well (it happened a lot today at 24/7 dust).

I have found a way to avoid getting kicked by this flaw (buffer overflow in net message). I googled this error and it has something to do with MIC spam... so after I disabled voice in my game.. I saw that everone except me and the hacker got kicked from the server.

I know that voice in game must be fun to most of you but it is the only way I have found until now.

~ Regards

Hey Watcher,

Thanks for the heads up, this works pretty well, admins will be able to ban the hacker on the spot if they're available when it happens.

Good job!

It's actually a exploit that mainly effects mani. It can be used in combination with other variables but mani is the main reason it kicks players. Without mani it would just cause a lag spike. One of the many reasons I've wanted to remove mani for years. I have patched 6 exploits in mani already this will make 7...I'm sure there are few more.

Command filters can actually stop this as well. I try to avoid using a lot of command filtering though as it adds more load to the servers. I prefer counters that will kick/ban and log players instead.

I have a patch coded I just need to test it.

Thank you lasteriax and thank you cadi for the explanation.
I was aware that disabling the voice in game would work just like a "band aid" so that at least the admins could fight back while we wait for the real fix.
