upgrading isn't helping, I have 5.2.0 server ... and I am just so successful getting hackers, buggers ... as see near 14 hours a day the terminal ... and using spectator (/watch gamer) at most at new joins
Maybe check out the mod fairplay ... even I dont use it yet, but might be a solution.
Howdy Festus ;)
Agreed, newer isn't always better. Upgrading the server to 5.x would open the floodgates to more troublemakers. At least with the antiquated server, the protocol difference makes connecting with a newer client too out-of-whack for troublemakers to be very efficient at their mischief.
I can sympathise with the many hours invested in babysitting a server. I spend several hours each week entering IP addresses and ranges from daily Fail2Ban reports of root attacks and occasionally DDoS attacks into the server's iptables. China and Russia are some of the most prolific automated attackers. The attacks come from all over the world at all times of the day and night.
Over the years many kids (and some pseudo-adults) have clamoured for updates. My answer to them is to dedicate their own time, money, and energy tending to their own servers. They come up with excuses why they can't; it's so much easier to criticize and complain than to do for themselves.
I'd better stop before I get into a long tirade.
Whitelisting the server may ultimately be the way to go.
Take care ;)
