Way to stop Zogga and SyRoN hack

Hey all

Had trouble with some hackers on my server last week, so I found out an easy method to stop hackers from injecting DLLs into the engine using an external loader.

First you have to know how the structure of loading works.

For who?
For private server owners with a custom launcher (with source).

A little intro
In your launcher/start.bat you will find something like this
engine.exe /load /config ***
where *** can be debug, test2, or anything else

In xlate-e.dat you will find:

(serverlist ( name "Hanin") ( IP "222.111.213.22") ( PORT "30001") (config "") (servernumber 1))
(serverlist ( name "Naraeha") ( IP "222.111.213.25") ( PORT "30001") (config "") (servernumber 2))
(serverlist ( name "Bango (New)") ( IP "222.111.213.28") ( PORT "30001") (config "") (servernumber 3))

look @ (config ""). This means the config will show all servers, no matter what the *** parameter is in the launcher's engine.exe /load /config ***.

Changing it to (config "test2") would be a better option, since when you launch the game with engine.exe /load /config debug, it would not show the server with (config "test2").

I hope you understand how this works.

Now, most of the hacks load the game with engine.exe /load /config debug. In most cases this will show all servers and they are free to hack.

How to fix this?
1) Get a random string of numbers and letters e.g. 5f8sd4fsd4f55f8899
2) Open xlate-e.dat and make it look llike this:
(serverlist ( name "Please run the game with the updater.") ( IP "127.0.0.1") (PORT "30000") (config "debug" "test2") (servernumber 1))
(serverlist ( name "Server name") ( IP "SERVERIP") (PORT "PORT") (config "5f8sd4fsd4f55f8899") (servernumber 2))
3) Edit your launcher (only works with custom launchers like the one from perpetualfear) and make your button for Start Game load
engine.exe /load /config 5f8sd4fsd4f55f8899
4) CRYPT YOUR HEX SOURCE USING Armadillo or PeCompact

What does it do against hacks?
Well Zogga.exe and Syron hack (and more, like kalhackit) load the engine and config.pk with an external program (Zogga.exe, NOOR-L.exe, ExtendLoader.exe). But, their weakness is that they only load debug or test2. (engine.exe /load /config debug or engine.exe /load /config test2)

Having a custom string will make it impossible to load since only hex-editing the external loaders would fix this, but of course hex editing is replacing bytes. Using a long custom string (my server is using a 32-char string) will make it impossible to hexedit the external loader.

When somebody tried to launch the game with the hack, they will not see your server in the serverlist but a warning that they should load the game with the updater.

Have fun!

Ask questions in this thread, not in PM

Really, instead of posting how to bypass it you should help fixing it. You are making a hackshield but you're still gonna help these kids hack?

Re: [Release] Way to stop Zogga and SyRoN hack

Yip :)
Its give a verry easy way how to make hack Running^^
But 80% of the People dont Can it ^^
And
@mukso Shutdown mysql and erase Phpmyadmin.
When you got a Root server with Plesk look in Plesk control Panel and deactive it there.
Because you can also connect easy to mysql without phpmyadmin.
