PostSubject: PSA: SOURCE ENGINE EXPLOIT (IMPORTANT)   Sun Sep 06, 2015 6:03 pm


Update: Majority of the source games have been patched. Will update with more details soon.

Hello everyone! Coront here, bringing you all another PSA! This is serious. Please read.

Recently, a source engine exploit was discovered. Although this will not affect you on our server, it can happen on others.

This exploit allows people to take files directly off your computer, which can result in people hi-jacking your steam account, taking all your items in games like TF2 or CS:GO, and getting you VAC banned. This exploit occurs when you join a server that has custom content. It can also happen when you load sprays. This seems to happen on games using the Source 2013 Multiplayer Base. There is a way to play games affected by the exploit. I will show how later.

Games known to be affected by this exploit:

1. Fistfull of Frags
2. Team Fortress Classic
3. Fortress Forever
4. No More Room in Hell
5. Vikings and Knights 2
6. Counter Strike: Source

This USED TO affect TF2, CS:GO, and DotA 2. But, Valve has released a patch to fix this. It is very possible that other games like Garrys Mod are affected by this glitch. So keep that in mind when playing any other source game.

As I said earlier, there is a way to play affected games, and avoid getting hi-jacked. You can prevent it by doing the following:

Enter the following console commands every time you run the game:

cl_allow download 0
cl_allowupload 0
cl_customsounds 0

You must also completely disable sprays.

I said it before, and i'll say it a final time: This may happen on source games not listed. Please keep this in mind when playing ANY multiplayer source game.

Thank you for reading, and please play safe until Valve has given the all clear.

NOTE: CL_ALLOWDOWNLOAD 0 MAY PREVENT YOU FROM DOWNLOADING NEEDED FILES FOR POSTNUKE SUCH AS MAPS AND OTHER CONTENT.

Just a heads up, the server-side allow upload and allow download are both disabled for our server, and hackers cannot re-enable it because we have no rcon password, so again, no need to worry about this on our server, but still if you want to feel safe, enter the command after you've loaded in.

Also, here's a video on this issue:
