OK, we had 2 guys in our server, JEDI Temple, that succeed in hacking into admins the same way they used to in 1.5..... Just to warn people around... I'll give the ips so you can add them to your Banip.dat file right away, before they cause damage : 18.104.22.168:28070 > From Canada/Québec
22.214.171.124:-32180 > From US/Florida
we will try find who they are...
I hate hackers.

Did you update to the fixed version of 1.6 that came out a few days ago?
I got feed back of the new patch like an hour AFTER I have posted.. yet, those two jackass should be BANNED from all servers... they were stupid enough to hack into one server... I think it's fair enough to ban them from all of them!
ok, i have the same here, i am in teh clan I3 and i was in the server and some guy told me he can hack, suddenly he banns the whole *beep* server, so he left, and now i coudent log in anymore as an AMADMIN! wtf?
They have dynamic i.p's which change everytime they log onto the internet best thing to do is this. http://www.topsecretsoftware.com/netscanner.html Never tried it before but it's free for 30 days get their ISP report them to it and BOOM no more internet for preteen script kiddies. :naughty:
ok, after much research... we've foudn out that one of the hackers was from *BS* clan, Fracture. I think BS should think twice before doing stupid things like that.. as I have heard even their server was shut by the Government or something like that....
I've had the newest 1.6 version out to a few guys who help be beta test it, they had it for nearly a month and didnt say anything to be about it, execpt they had atempted hackers going wtf. The only reason this exploit exists is due to the changing of the max length of a name from 32 characters to 50

well its always gonna be a prob until they make the string lengths and checking right, like actually count the ^ symbols as well as the char symbols :/
dunno if this can be done with mod, or has to be done at source
do other quake3 based games have this problem?
