Please be advised that the unofficial Gold update/addon for Pure Faction has been removed from Faction Files, and we highly recommend everyone against using it. Furthermore, if you have run this unofficial update/addon on your system, the potential exists that your system may be compromised. This includes any servers that are currently or have ever run Gold.

This action has been taken quickly following in-depth security analysis of the PF Gold addon by rafalh.

rafalh's analysis produced direct evidence of the presence of multiple "backdoors" in PF Gold which allow:
1. The developer of PF Gold to attack systems running Gold by remotely running commands (including arbitrary code) without the knowledge of that system's owner
2. Anyone to change the names of players in PF Gold servers without authentication (as shown in the screenshot below)
3. Anyone to teleport other players in PF Gold servers without authentication
4. Anyone to spawn items in PF Gold servers without authentication
5. Anyone to make sounds play in PF Gold servers without authentication
6. Anyone to reveal the true IP addresses of players in PF Gold servers without authentication

In response to his development and distribution of software which is by definition malicious and potentially harmful to community members, PF Gold's developer has been banned from this community.

The Faction Files administrators would like to thank rafalh for his research and detailed analysis of these vulnerabilities.

NOTE: Neither vanilla Pure Faction, nor Dash Faction are affected by these security issues - they apply only to the unofficial PF Gold addon. Please visit http://redfaction.help to compare and download custom versions of Red Faction (and find resolutions to common issues you may encounter).
