Hackers crashing dedicated game?

I have been running a dedicated server on my WinXP for alittel while and I have been getting some hackers crashign my Jedi Outcast. Is it possible to make this harder for them to do this. Is there a good mod out there to help with this?

I really don't think "hackers" would be crashing your game.

I hear there are commands or binds that people can do to do this. We had one do it when me and my members where on it.


Know any good Mods for the JO that have good banning and tracking cababilities?

well i also though that i was the only one who had it, but i am paranoid so i have changed it 3 times allready, sometimes there can be something as admin that we type something wrong or forget a letter and PANG password have been typed and all can see it.

Ok, well I have changed the password. I also ran into a player who was on our server and shot me with like a ton of missles repeatedly. Can you stop hacks like this?

No he is right this is an exploit that allows someone to crash he server - more info here [url]http://www.securiteam.com/securitynews/5AP051FFGY.html[\url]

It relates to a dodgy print function that JKA uses being exploited, it's pathetic and disgusting that LucasArts have not addressed this problem with a new patch.

This will allow someone to crash your server, I'm unsure and unable to find any more info. Someone has said that they could even create backdoors to the server and effectively hack the computer it's self but I am unsure if that is true.

thats a pretty vague description, you can carry up to 25 rockets at one time and you can fire them off pretty quickly in regular play w/o it being 'omg hax'.

Actually it is possible, unfortunately, see here.

I confirmed it with Razor. It's just a crash bug exploit, but it's real.

As for the firing missiles thing.. test it yourself. Load up with rockets in your own game and fire them as fast as you can. Also note that while Force Dark Raged, you can fire 2x faster than normal.
