Default More(?) evidence that someone is intentionally crashing n00bstories

Shortly after a crash...

HTML Code:
[00:00:35] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [14/40|bunker] Cadoam: someone packet overload server to not lose? the mystery
[00:00:49] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [15/40|bunker] flexedblaze: i wonder who that was
[00:00:52] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [15/40|bunker] FATGUYY: fat guy power
[00:01:01] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [15/40|bunker] Pagiel: serious u can do that
[00:01:10] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [17/40|bunker] [PHASE]: Picking Squads
[00:01:11] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [17/40|bunker] flexedblaze: you can
[00:01:18] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [17/40|bunker] OneIceCool: Why does that happen?
[00:01:19] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [17/40|bunker] flexedblaze: only me and renato know how to
[00:01:24] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [17/40|bunker] FATGUYY: no its impossible
[00:01:25] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [17/40|bunker] [PHASE]: Battle time!
[00:01:27] [&phpSavageBot-3]: [17/40|bunker] Cadoam: yes, and its not that hard
And yes, I do have the "reliable packet overflow" fix in iptables. These crashes do not show anything in the logs that I can recognize. I have been VERY suspicious of the timing and frequency of the crashing lately and this pretty much confirms it's happening. Can anyone help me track down who and how to fix/stop it?

Flexedblaze was previously suspected if you are not already aware. I've also witnessed that he's usually the first person to recover from a crash when a crash happens. This could be attributed to a strong internet connection or perhaps to immediate reaction as a result of knowing exactly when a crash will happen.

Interesting. I was not aware, and in fact wasn't even aware if there is/was a suspicion of someone crashing servers. I'm assuming I'm probably not the only one affected. Of course I have lots of information logged about this person automatically, and he seems to all but confirm it in this chat log.

Yes.... I think I already made it clear in the past that its Flexedblaze as he hinted it to me when I use to be a admin. He pretends that he is a admin and acts big because he has the power to crash servers.

Nuff said

Does anyone know how he's doing it? I have certain ways to block him but it's better if I know how he's doing it.

Old55 made a script.
If the person uses the RPO trick, it blocks them from sending any packets.
This includes chat, spending stat items, donating, or anything in general. You can still play, you just can't do anything important.
I can send you a message on how to RPO.

But yes, Flexed is usually the person doing it.

OK, now I know what to look for better. That's a start. I wonder why he didn't build it into the wrapper?

Like most things they turn out pretty buggy, but it seems like a simple script to me.
Just like the on-top-of-buildings script, but I never saw that bug out.

As usual, Xigbar is totally incorrect. I never made such a script. The RPO fix was done by someone else and is just an iptables command to prevent large packets from causing the overflow. I did write something to prevent chat spamming that is part of the wrapper. That just kicks the chat spammer.

Excuse me for trying to give you some credit you angry old fart.
So it's pretty much exactly what I just said. Thanks anyway.
