Guys, can someone tell me how this hack actually works? Looking to patch it out of TA, and it does seem to work :tongue.gif:
There isn't a hack. When banning someone via IP you're ONLY banning their IP, their account can still connect just from a different IP. The problem in this situation was someone joining, being made OP, setting up other people with OP privileges, abusing and getting IP banned, then rejoining.
If this is directed at me, I have no idea why. He is not hosting anything for me. I don't run any servers, I just help OP a bunch. I was only (trying to offer or) offering a counterargument to what you fine young lads are saying.
Pure java code is effectivly immune to buffer overflows, and this is a small project, small projects/open source are more secure than bigger ones because the coders can communicate better about the code, and what bits of it does.
With one person, the communication issues drop to 0. So if Notch finds a piece of code that does odd stuff, he can just remove it.
Finally, it's a small target, no one will have the time to try to find an exploit(if there is one).
BTW, I will bet that your bank will probably be less secure than minecraft.

I disagree with you, therefore you are wrong.
