A critcal security vulnerbility has been discovered in cracked servers (server with cracked engine.dll), and this has been discovered by a misterious man called MR.Clean, who is a crack server hater. The exploit would let the hacker seize root access to the server's operating system, which will allow the hacker to manipulate the system, such as delete, steal, upload files to the server, and even DOWNLOAD files from it. A few people who observed the have has claimed that the scrds was stalled for a moment, and ftp.exe was spawned automatically. A similar thing would happen if you are running linux as well. Here is a conversation between my friend, who is a server operator of a popular 32 man cracked server. Mr. Clean: I have a piece of information for you ----: ? Mr. Clean: Pirate servers have a security vulnerability Mr. Clean: As long as your server is pirate Mr. Clean: I will kill it Mr. Clean: randomly ----: whos this Mr. Clean: Someone who doesn't like pirate servers ----: whats the vulnerability Mr. Clean is now Offline. Mr. Clean is now playing Team Fortress 2. Click here to join. Mr. Clean is now Online. Mr. Clean: Did you get that Mr. Clean: ----: whos this Mr. Clean: Someone who doesn't like pirate servers Mr. Clean: I deleted everything related to your tf2 server Mr. Clean: I left it as that as a warning Mr. Clean: if you start up another pirate server I will hose the operating system ----: lol ----: stfu Mr. Clean: lol Mr. Clean: your server hasn't come back MR.Clean's steam community page can be accessed here: Steam Community :: ID :: Mr.CleanESQ If you know how this exploit was done, please let me know, so i can contact vivanty and other server crack makers.
