Server being hacked?

Post by Valkyr on Sat Jan 23, 2016 2:33 pm

There was a player on asylum named amsterdam new player. Besides from simply being a complete imbecile and douchebag, I think he hacked the server. I wasnt able to get any info on him. When i started a vote to kick him, it wouldnt work, either its disabled, or i just couldnt get enough votes. the third time i tried, i chose his name from the player list and voted again to kick but my name popped up instead of his and the server booted me instead of him. WTF? Is there a hack that allows this to happen? Just thought I would report it.

I'd call BS on this except the exact same thing happened to me. I have two players in mind that it happened with ... general annoying, shoving, harassing, incessant "Join my fireteam," saying I was hacking, etc, etc ... and then the exact same thing happened with me with the vote thing. Anyway, I didn't do a video or record it, and that's what we need to "maybe" get somebody kicked for hacking. So until then, better to just play and not accuse without proof ... I say this having had the exact same experience as you.

It definitely sounds like an experiment I'm about to reproduce  Very Happy

Aww...F*ck that Sh*t!!! It happenned to a couple other players beside me and hash. Go thru the logs and ban that A$$hole! Repeated incidents with multiple players is sufficient proof of a hack.

From what I've seen he's just voting no whenever a vote to kick him comes up. The voting system requires way more yes votes than no votes, where 1 no vote is enough to make it impossible for the vote to pass. When this happens, the vote cancels. As to why a vote comes up to kick you, it is probably him calling that vote.

Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad I know you are just trying to give an explanation for what happened. He never initiated a vote to kick any of us. The server makes an obvious announcement when votes are called. he never did one while i was on the server. the other players aren't gonna vote yes to kick me if i am doing nothing wrong. The votes that kicked at least four of us were initiated by us but when we chose his name from the list our names came up instead, and his vote was the one that would boot us. This happened to at LEAST four of us, some of them have posted in this thread. The player being kicked should be blocked from voting. This is a hack, for sure. A simple IF/THEN script is all that is required if you gain access to the server controls. I know everyone says silent mode is unhackable but that simply isn't true, We have already banned a number of hackers and this a$$hole should be one of them. If you have the power to do it, then please do. If only for the reason that he is a bigger jerkoff than Speedy ever was. There are enough douchebags and retards as it is without this schmuck messing things up.  Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

All right I turned voting off. So nobody should be getting kicked by whatever this thing is.

Thanks for the report.

As for this accused hacker, it has always been my policy that I need a video to ban someone. Please post a video as usual.

I can't speak to New Amsterdam being a hack, but a D-bag for sure.  Every time he is in a game, he is calling someone a hacker (usually anyone who kills him).

Turning off voting solves only the incidental issue of the undeserving being kicked. There needs to be a way to get rid of douchebags like this available to regular players. Voting was it. There are very rarely admins on the server and no one really knows who they are. I have to do a listplayer to see who might be one. Past experience has proved to me that requesting an admin do anything usually just results in them telling you that silent mod is unhackable and doing nothing to the player (who, as it turns ot, really IS hacking). 
If it is unhackable, why have admins?
