I made my Steam Profile private to none steam friends. Why is that big issue? well my friend saintdmac server is being attacked by DDoS so we had to change the server IP without telling regular players who goes on there. This is all started when the hacker was aimboting in our server, we did what normal admins do such as ban or ipban which didn’t work and after several bans they started to DDoSing our server to make it crashed…
this hacker has multiple steam accounts to do this like it’s shows here..
and when we manage to grab their IP and found where their are located and they seem to have school computers to do this sort of thing which is very frustrating. So now the hacker is stalking our profiles trying to add us to grab our IP to DDoS our computers.. but we’re not stupid to add anyone since we don’t accept random adds anymore at all.
But putting our steam profile private to none friends helps us to keep our new server running, stopping that hacker joining us in game and doing the same shit.
You guys have no idea how frustrating we are at this sort of thing -.-;; and trust me Valve won’t do a shit since this happens to other servers but we are still trying to improve the server to try avoid DDoS right now.
i’ll put my steam on public when it’s safe, maybe after couple months time
