Call of Duty security question

Topic created · 5 Posts · 50 Views
  • Hello! first of all i would like to thank you for your work, i love old cod and i am happy that after a good 12 years i can still play my favorite game, thank you!!!

    ever since i found out that there are security flaws, i have always been a bit scared to play it, from what i understand RCE flaws only work in steam/p2p version, i would like to understand, regarding call of duty, what is the difference between p2p and dedicated servers? did these flaws previously work on dedicated servers as well?
    i always wanted to download CoD4x, just nowhere they say it is safe to play, even mw3 steam has server list, are those servers vulnerable?
    Is there a risk that even the new cod, over time, will become vulnerable like the old ones?

    thank you for your hard work!

  • Most of those Exploits use Steams API I believe and of course Plutonium patches that stuff out so no I don't believe its possible

    Difference between the servers should be pretty Obvious one is hosted by a player and everyone connects to the player meaning your IP is super visible

    vs connecting to a outside server that doesn't show your IP address personally plus servers can constantly run and shouldn't have to ever deal with that dogshit Host Migration ever again

  • Thank you very much for the answer, so theoretically, rce exploits don't work on third party clients since they work outside steam, right?

  • @Raccoonex84 I won't talk about other clients, just know that some of them do have exploits.
    As for Plutonium yes all known exploits are patched by our dev team.

  • thank you for answering my questions, I appreciate it, have a good game!
