Epic Games sent an email to the server admin mailing list suggesting a quick fix to a really lame exploit. If you're running a CTF or BR server - you'll want to patch it immediately.
Attached is a better fix until we release the next patch. This is a tiny server side actor that will detect the usage of the hack and fix the exploit as it happens. It also logs the cheater so please feel free to send firstname.lastname@example.org the GUID's of people caught using it so we can get rid of them. It should be compatible with all versions of UT2K4 and all mods. Just follow the installation directions in the CTFFix.txt file located in the archive. It's probably ok to announce it. I'd rather it was tested more but this is a pretty crappy exploit that needs to be closed. Feel free to give it to other people. And yes, it should be used for VCTF as well.
Temporary Fix for the Game Objective Exploit -------------------------------------------- 1. Take down your server 2. Unzip this archive so that CTFFix.u exists in your server's \system directory. 3. Edit UT2004.ini 4. Find the section [Engine.GameEngine] 5. Add the line: ServerActors=CTFFix.CTFFlagFix 6. Save the file 7. Restart your server This is a server side actor so DO NOT add it to your ServerPackages list.
