A certain hacking program has been detected by VAC

Postby Justin » April 29th, 2016, 7:13 pm

Looks like the premium version got detected and a ban wave hit. It was pretty bad to the upper levels of ugc. UGC Post

So if there's someone you are used to see playing all the time but don't see them for a while, check for a VAC ban.

Edit is below:

Looks like the guy behind the hacking program is calling it quits. Someone cheated at a LAN (think it was the Florida LAN) and Miggy got a hold of the github link containing the sourcecode and sent it to Valve.

UGC has handed out 467 new players to the VAC list but only 167 were rostered. Google Spreadsheet for easy searching.

I would be on the lookout for a similar wave of bans from etf2l and esea in the coming week.

And remember kids:
If you receive a ban for a game that has in-game items such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, your items cannot be transferred to a different account.
Upon receiving a VAC ban for either Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike: Source, or Half-Life 2: Deathmatch your items from Team Fortress 2 will be removed except any items that have been purchased.
Need something? Send me a PM here and I will get to it within 48 hours, or add me on Steam and I will get to it eventually - http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198025232990

Noice
Without strife, your victory has no meaning. Without strife, you do not advance. Without strife, there is only stagnation
I only came here because I thought there was pudding.
That's a pretty good reason to go anywhere

Here's a cheezy motivational speech:
(Just imagine a knight army general shouting this from atop a large rock)



We knew this day would come.
The enemy's army has fallen.
Their weapons are useless.
Even their leader has given up hope.
We have fought for years.
Day after day, they have had the upper hand.
Destroying entire fleets of our troops with a single soldier.
However, on this day, we have found their tactic
They had been exploiting a weakness in our very world
We have found, and destroyed this vunerabillity.
They are now powerless, and are stopped as soon as they enter battle
With the deft hand of god, they are decimated, never to be seen again.
We have our taste of victory.
Relish it, for it will not last long.
The battle has all but ended.
There will be survivors.
They will seek and develop new weapons of destruction.
All we can do to combat the scum of the earth,
is bring a swift hammer of justice upon their heads.
Banishing them from this realm, in which we live.
We will continue to fight them, until we have crushed their very spirit.
Live well, and fight hard.


Honestly I don't know what that was, I just felt like writing something.
(And yes, this is about the hackers)
Beware my awkwardness! I am the thread killer.

This is a good thing but it only means so much. The VAC system is often slow and takes a long time before it will ban a player. Just because VAC can detect it now does not mean its unusable or that we will never see it again. What this does mean is that anyone dumb enough to still use it (and probably anything else derived from the source) will get caught, even if it isn't by one of our admins.
In all this vastness there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves

Also there are scriptwriters who can use a different code to make the same effects. So unless TF2 files cannot be edited...and to quote Ian Malcolm "I'm simply saying that life, uh... finds a way."
