So any confirmation that the exploit was fixed yet so something like this doesn't happen again?
The website is still pulled, and I don't even feel safe when I'm mapping.
The FragFrog TF2C server may be offline for good. I can't get a hold of the owner of the server and it's been offline for 4 days now :(
To be safe, set cl_customsounds to 0 and you shouldn't be able to download other players sound sprays.
edit: noticed there are some additional commands in the Reddit thread you should probably use.
It doesn't matter if you turn off sprays, or custom sounds, you can still be infected with a custom map that has a bad sound in it.
You have to turn off all downloads including custom maps.
I deleted the TF2C folder so I can unistall the game so I have no idea if I had dust bowl pr nailgun.wav.
scanned with malewarebytes,panda,EST(confirmed to detect it).My stuff also hasn't been stolen.
Welp, just lost my computer... The virus or whatever remote control they have, has been happening and prevented me from updating anything, broke my antivirus and firewall. Despite factory resetting and such, will try finding a solution at some point.
Just want to know why really, to cause havoc or for some other reason. Just feels so unnecessary...
Did that, and when I was able to get back onto the destop, that's when things got chaotic...
Did you use EST? It was confirmed to be able to detect it.
Preventing me from finishing the scan then breaking the whole thing, doesn't work at all now, just freezes / errors.
My stuff hasn't been stolen either, scanned with 3 anti-virus,no sign of it's effects.
Also,when I typed scvhost.exe in the search box in file explorer it came up with a whole list of them but they seemed legit,anyone have a list of the real ones?
Couldn't find anything in that folder before and after I unistalled source SDK
Last change was months ago.
Yeah the last update was just the separation of SteamVR from apps so that when the SteamVR base is updated, other apps aren't all touched too (which would result in a huge changelist).
I just heard what happened, so basically some crying pissbaby that got banned decided to upload some bad shit/viruses to fuck with people who could actually play the game?
That's just fucking pathetic IMO.
If you don't do shit now what's to stop him from doing it again later down the road?
Is it possible to see player names + ip addresses for whoever joined servers in the past? Because if so, we might be able to find out where RubberFruitFace is. Not sure if that could actually work or not though.
But before doing anything like that ask a mod.
Unless you want to do it on the TF2C forums then the rules here don't really apply as long as you keep it there.
Well, I made a post on the PVK2 forums about this exploit since I haven't seen one, thank you for the heads up with the Reddit post guys.
