Security update for dedicated servers

HomeNews

This is an alert for all of you that hosts or rented an UrbanTerror game servers.
Recently, Urban Terror servers has been targeted as a proxy for DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attacks. Meaning: your game servers are being abused by 'third-party' to conduct their DRDoS (Distributed Reflected Denial of Service) attacks on other targets (hosts) on the Internet.
There is now an official update to remedy this, as well for other known server exploits.

* If you hosts your own game servers, go to http://www.urbanterror.info/downloads/security/ (or uses our local mirror) and update your dedicated server binaries/executables now!

* If you have rented a game server, please contact your game server hosting provider and inform them of this important security update; it might cost them bandwidth resources if they don't.

Additional forum discussion and information: http://www.urbanterror.info/forums/topic/27825-drdos/

Consequences of not updating your dedicated servers might be:
- Not being listed from master server query results (which will take into effects in a few days)
- Excessive bandwidth usage, which might leads to..
- Server lag
- Potential extra cost due to the bandwidth 'wasted' on the DRDoS
- Server being shut down

So update now!

A request has been made for them to provide an official version compiled against older GLIBC versions.

If you don't have the patience, you could additionally compile it yourself on a system with older GLIBC (2.5 or 2.6). See GitHUB.

A known community member that runs his own game servers has compiled one against an older GLIBC version (on a CentOS 5.5 Box).
See this post. Use at your own risk tho as it's not an official release by Frozen Sand.

Also, check this page for some additional updated information on the DRDoS attacks: http://www.urbanterror.info/forums/topic/27825-drdos/page__st__150
