Over the past 6+ months, Since Mid February, I have been harassed by a hacker. The hacker started off with the "weather hack", editing weather sounds/effects, Spawning Grenades on players, deleting characters & bases. The hacker is now causing servers to freeze, maxing out machine ram/causing a ram leak in DayZServer.exe upon him connecting. The hacker does not need to fully connect for this to cause a crash, only the "Character" name is shown, no ID or any other identifiers are shown...EX:
19:13:00.226 Players: 25 in total 19:13:03.995 [Login]: Adding player Crystal (198976838) to login queue at position 0 19:13:03.995 [LoginMachine]: Add player Crystal (198976838) 19:13:03.995 [StateMachine]: Player Crystal (dpnid 198976838 uid ) Entering AuthPlayerLoginState 19:13:03.995 Server: SetClientState dpid=198976838 id=0 name=Crystal CREATED -> CONNECTED ======================================================= ------------------------------------------------------- Time: 19:13:04 Exception code: C0000005 ACCESS_VIOLATION at B2C4F92F
We have also seen him spoofing players Steam64ID/GUID/BI ID's.
We have gone through all routes of trying to fix this ourselves but its clear that this is an engine level vulnerability, not a mod, script, or server vulnerability.
This is now my 4th ticket about this hacker and the engine vulnerability he is abusing, 2nd public ticket as my newest private ticket hasnt had a response/comment from a dev or @Geez since it was made on July 27th. That is just not acceptable when there is a vulnerability in DayZ's engine as serious as this.
This is my last attempt to get this fixed, I cannot continue forward constantly being harassed by a hacker who is abusing a vulnerability that I cannot fix. My servers are the LEAST of my worries right now, because if this isn't fixed soon, I will need to shutdown my servers and the hacker will move on to find the next community to destroy. I have spent the past 6+ years supporting this game but now, due to this vulnerability, I have no choice but to move on.
As always let me know if you need information, if you would rather respond to my private ticket here is the link: https://feedback.bistudio.com/T159913
