learn to code. secure your game inputs btw your cpanel can not get hacked(maybe brute force). just insecure game spots.

... btw your cpanel can not get hacked ...

ya think? -- Never *ever* make assumptions like this until you can personally guarantee ALL the code from the cpanel down to the microcode on a machine. CPanel is often listed as having some serious vulnerabilities in the security news. In fact I choose to install machines without any type of control panel for the very reason that they are insecure.

As for securing a game, pretty basic stuff - read the topics in the PHP FAQs section here, we have covered the basics which will prevent 99% of attacks. The other 1%, well, that's a little trickier ;) But thankfully few people understand the concepts behind those attacks as yet, so I wouldn't worry about them - especially for such a small thing as a game.

Reason i don't use cpanel!!!

 

mysql_real_escape_string()

is this needed for V2? if so, in which php file do I include it and where?

You add it to every file, and not just once. ;)

Re: How To Protect Your Game From Hackers?

this looks like a very special post... lol

just remember if it can be edited then it needs to be secure lol i try and secure everything from global func to globals

obviously my website will still be hackable to people with higher intelligence but you lower it by every query or statement you secure.

a regular "rpg hacker" copies the codes from a text file... and does not know anything on how they work etc...

but if you get someone who understands the weak points if mc then that's when you have a issue...

most common attacks are cmarket and forum and sometimes if enabled profile signature using basic knowledge attacks.

anything that can be edited by a user should be secured.

if not then your just asking to be hacked.

from a 1 dollar game to a 1000 dollar game all are subject to being hacked, the "hacker" doesn't mind.

he is problarly on a Windows Server....or a free host, lol...thats why he don't have cPanel.....Most likely......Yet I can be wrong,.

I don't think it is free at 14.99pcm...

I am hosted with www.stratohosting.co.uk with the top package it has no crons and no cpanel.

Strato is the UK's second largest webhost.

ok......i looked...Like I said i might be wrong...but so are you...if your buying that big one it has crons, LMAO so doubt you ahve it

http://www.stratohosting.co.uk/webhosting/packages.html

if you dont have crons man you need to be calling them and complaing

It has crons but i stated it didn't purely because i have to pay for an external host to host them as they do not allow for 1 minute crons.

Also you could do a whois on my domain ;)
