Please help!

This person joined my server and asked for admin, and I said no. He kept asking and I kept saying no so he got pissed and now he's shutting down my server every time I load it. He is a hacker! Can anyone help me? I want to play on my server but he won't let me because he keeps shutting it down! HELP!

Report it to your server host company, specifying the times when this occured and any details that will help them find the logs for your server (IP address, port, and customer account name). They can isolate the IP and exact times these attacks have occured, resolve the IP address hostname to find the internet service provider, then contact the ISP of your "hacker"

If your server is home-hosted, there's not much you can do. The blatant lack of defensive measures is one of many reasons you shouldn't host your own servers - y'all just don't have (and probably can't afford) the high-end industrial firewalls a hosting company uses.

Check your home firewall. Does it have the ability to block certain IP addresses? If so, you can block the IP the attacks come from. However, if the "hacker" has a dynamic IP address, that'll only stop them for a day at the most, plus you risk blocking other people.

Change the port the server runs on.

Failing that, contact your internet service provider. Conducting a denial of service attack on any of their customers, may be something they'd contemplate taking legal action against. At the very least, if you can provide enough information for them to trace the culprit's internet service provider, your ISP may send their ISP a nice hefty letter about what they're doing - which will prossibly result in them having their internet access revoked, perhaps temporarily or perhaps permanently depending on the severity of these activities and how much evidence the ISP can gather. After all, such activities tend to be against the terms of service of most ISPs.

Hah, I remember the last poor bastard who tried to run a DoS attack against FileFront. The legal department roughed 'em up.... :lol:

(FYI, the moron kid is nowhere near being a hacker. Not even in the same ballpark. Hell, not even in the same state. By referring to him/her/it as such you're just giving these clowns more credit than they're worth; they don't know the first thing about hacking, they're just using a pre-compiled tool they found on Google. 99.9% of these "hackers" couldn't hack the copy protection on a copy of Worms Armageddon.)

Although frankly, I think the four dozen trojans the kid probably got from running that 'hax tool' is punishment enough. Sure hope it's not a family computer, or daddy's gonna be pissed when he finds out his moron kid got his credit card number fished by being a complete and utter moron and installing something so obviously laden down with malware that even the built-in Windows Malware Removal Tool can detect it. :cort:


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

There's only two real ways he could be "shutting down" your server (as far as JKA itself is concerned), barring password stealing. If you are using a mod on your server, download the latest version, as all the major mods have these things already fixed. Or if you are running basejka, search jkfiles for Gamall's BaseJKA Security Fix and use that. You are gonna have to actually read the readmes and other instructions to make sure you install things properly, but if you can do that you will be fine.

And I agree with Kouen that they aren't actually hackers, but it is slightly easier to type the word "hacker" than "script kiddie"... people on the internet are lazy (like me) :p. And I also got the Worms reference... lol.

Contact your website host.

Alternately, don't use simple passwords, or ones that are easy to guess. The more complex the password, the better - 16 characters, comprised of A-Z, a-z, and 0-9 is right in the sweet spot.

The only way people are going to get into any aspect of your website is by getting their hands on the credentials, so your best preventative measure is to make sure they don't.

i need to see what type of site/host you have. if you have ftp access, carefully DL all the sites files and run an av scan on them. hopefully you can clean them and re-upload :)
