Hacker

11 posts in this topic

Excuse me for putting this here, but I do not see a "Player Complaints" or "Report Player" section anywhere.

Anyways I might as well put it where everyone will easily find it.

Who is the hacker?: % %

How is he hacking?: Last night in a server he was able to join a hidden enemy team, be invisible, and came at us with a chainsaw. Also, today he was trying to kill me, but didn't show off any hacks at the time of trying to kill me.

well I don't know what else to put here... I'll try to get footage

here is his steam url profile and in-game his % makes it so you can't actually read his name: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198088513506/

I will try to get further proof to that this IS the hacker because I could mistake him for some random griefer, yet both him and the hacker had a small image of a car for a profile background and a hidden name

Hey, thanks for bringing this to our attention. Was this on the Steam pre-release 1.07 or on the old 1.06? I believe VAC is not hooked up yet because we are not officially released. So no servers are secure right now. Once we officially launch that will not be the case. We cannot take action unless we have 100% proof. The best way to do that is to record a video of it and make sure you have the correct Steam ID of the person hacking. It doesn't have to be HD quality video, but clear enough to make no mistake.

Sorry this happened to you guys. We will set up a better way for reporting hackers and griefers before launch. Just make sure you have proof and a Steam ID and we can take action.

Sounds like he joined spectator team, which anybody can do at any time. I'm doubtful this is a case of hacking.

a flying chainsaw came at a man and kill him, thus restarting the game while some dude was making music from Jaws

when I respawned, shortly after, the same fate came for me (except no Jaws Music)

I will try to record this if I see him again

I thought valve fixed the issue with the player names? Maybe it was just %s (which allows for a string to be used in the fprint function for C). Anyways, good to see that vac will be up. Not sure if it could be implemented, but it would be nice to kick players without a valid character in their name.

He might have been using the spectate command which apparently was broken. This (and changeteam) are disabled in the latest steam build.

http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198112480217/ - whether it's the same dude or some different dude this guy is team kills as well, they seem to have the same voice aswell (and use %% to hide name)

Here is a youtube video link

(This is still uploading so if it doesn't work sorry!)

This person should be I.P. banned for atleast team killing (I.P. because he can just get another account and play)

Sorry for late answer btw this is 1.06 sorry

Since it is on the 1.06 build, there isn't much we can do. The only real option would be to show the video to the server administrator or someone with rcon on that server. If it was on our 1.07 closed beta then it would be a different story. Sorry!
