yay, Drama i realy do enjoy everyone getting involved in some coder kiddies fantasy, makes me feal all warm and fuzzy inside. Also, i laff at anyone who scripted a server from scratch ( Excluding python, because it is one of the most easyiest languages you can learn...) And cannot stop this person from attacking. So please stop spreading drama arround like idiots, and to all you people just running a server, i expect, from all the drama, there to be a patch to combat this very soon.
Precisely my motives. This may encourage Notch to patch the client, though that "fix" would be a dodgy one. Certain vulnerabilities you would not expect from those with the talent to create a custom server (more difficult than it sounds, trust me) still exist. Basic precautions need to be taken place when making this type of software, and those basic precautions need to be made public...or more readily viewable, perhaps.
It boggles my mind when someone makes a beautiful, multi-map capable piece of server software, which does not verify who is connecting to it. Especially when even the server owner is not verified, and any average-joe like myself can spawn water in the sky. WoM has impressed me, their software is very secure. WoM has the right idea, though there's something Notch can work on; surely, there far are more efficient ways to handle an invalid character than breaking.
[Elegant Voice]Mister Herrode,[/Elegant Voice][Voice of the typical ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?]Herrode, are you HIGH? Have you had too much Heroin? (Hence your name) You don't make a point by hacking, crashing, and doing whatever the hayl else you can to tick people off! I mean sure, I use hacks to fight griefing, but that's different! I don't go crashing servers, and I don't hack people's accounts! What are you smoking, mister?[/Voice of the typical ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?]

Apparantly, he can connect to Denver, Colorado or somewhere in england.
He's Kaitou, according to kaitou in that topic. I think this man has just learned to hack life.
Mod Edit: This post is hardly groundbreaking enough to warrant a two month necro. Consider yourself warned.
