How to crash an Enemy Territory server using WeaponStats command


  • admin

    Enemy Territory is developped in C, which is a low level language which requires developpers to manage memory allocations by their own.

    Sometimes, proper check of cvar length is not done, and a buffer overflow can happen.

    This is the case of the WeaponStats cvar.
    So to crash a server, you just have to type

    /ws 9999999
    

    Unpatched servers will crash and every players will be disconnected.
