    My Server Being Hack?

    Hello,

    I need help in a situation that I have never encountered before. Yesterday, I started to notice in my Procon log that my server was being his by some type of population hack. The logs shows multiple players with similar names entering the server, but never actually entering the server. I am not able to ban these players in adkats since there is no record of the player since they never actually enter the server. Below is a sample of my logs to show what I mean:

    [06:22:42] Nigerian152 has joined the server..
    [06:22:47] Nigerian122 has joined the server..
    [06:22:51] Nigerian124 has joined the server..
    [06:22:56] Nigerian125 has joined the server..
    [06:23:02] Nigerian126 has joined the server..
    [06:23:04] Nigerian127 has joined the server..
    [06:23:09] Nigerian128 has joined the server..
    [06:23:13] Nigerian129 has joined the server..
    [06:23:18] Nigerian130 has joined the server..
    [06:23:22] Nigerian131 has joined the server..
    [06:23:27] Nigerian133 has joined the server..
    [06:23:31] Nigerian132 has joined the server..
    [06:23:36] Nigerian134 has joined the server..
    [06:23:40] Nigerian135 has joined the server..
    [06:23:45] Nigerian136 has joined the server..
    [06:23:50] Nigerian137 has joined the server..
    [06:23:53] Nigerian138 has joined the server..
    [06:23:57] GeirskoguI has joined the server..
    [06:23:58] Nigerian139 has joined the server..
    [06:24:03] Nigerian140 has joined the server..
    [06:24:07] Nigerian141 has joined the server..
    [06:24:11] Nigerians142 has joined the server..
    [06:24:16] Nigerian143 has joined the server..
    [06:24:20] Nigerian146 has joined the server..
    [06:24:27] Nigerian147 has joined the server..
    [06:24:29] Nigerian148 has joined the server..

    It is showing my that my server is full in Battlelog, but there may only be 20 players in the server out of a 32 slot server.

    Any Ideas how to stop this?

    Thank you in advance for whatever information or help you can provide.

    This isn't a hack, it's a seeding tool being used against you. Sometimes admins use seeder tools to make their servers appear more full than normal, but if the seeder is set up with too many seed accounts it can saturate the join queue and no real players can join.

    Is this something that I can control? I didn't install this or active this! How do I stop it? And how could someone access the server to do it?

    They don't need to access the server. It's just a script that has real player accounts joining/leaving the server in quick succession, clogging up the join queue. As far as I know there is nothing that can be done about it at this time since they don't stay in the server long enough for a kick/ban to be enforced. They are basically using server seeding tools developed for admins against admins. The irony is not lost on me.
