Thumbs up The %n Exploit's Effect on Illegal CS-S Copies

Recently Valve just updated so that any legit users (paid copies) won't get the exploit, however, people with Warezed copy's are still vulnerable.

Quote:
Cracked version doesn't have %n name fix update. So change name to %n and type kill in console - all hacked players now timeout - you see them hanging in the air!!
Maybe that will teach all the warezer's

If implemented correctly, including secret exploits would be one hell of a piracy-prevention method.

Plus if you do this on servers, you get kicked for supposedly attempting to crash the server before you can explain yourself. Heh.

I never experienced that

I have been playing in a couple of days now with the name "%n Gaco" and everytime I join a server, 70% of the people have timeouts and leaves after a minutte... Its sad that so few people actually purchased this game, but It's pretty damn fun just to "clean" the all the servers of warez players. I call upon all other legal CSS players in here to do that same
