    While I was working on my MobArena, Khobbits joined and then made himself moderator when he wasn't supposed to be moderator (He never had op)! So I tried to ban his ip, but it didn't work, so I banned his name and then he left. After a few minutes, KHobbits unbanned himself and joined the server again! I eventually realised that he had asisstant called ElgarL (who was also not supposed to be moderator) who unbanned KHobbits everytime I banned KHobbits. KHobbits told me that if I banned him again he would crash my server. Quickly, I banned KHobbits, ElgarL and both of their ips. I found out that KHobbits was the author of Essentials, and I thought he put some code in the Essentials so he could make himself moderator and unban them selves.

    KHobbits had a skin so I don't think he used a cracked client

    I don't think KHobbits or ElgarL would do such things to your server, did you install any plugins that don't come from dev.bukkit? Don't install plugins from outside of dev.bukkit... And no Essentials doesn't include any debug code that allows KHobbits or ElgarL to be promoted as OP or whatever, that's illegal on dev.bukkit.

    Check your plugins folder, there might be a plugin that they installed trough ftp.
    Also I recommend to scan your computer.

    Install mbam, get off internet and scan.

    checking against the actual khobbits and elgarl confirms that they werent at the server at the time of that post, thus confirming the OP is running offline mode client where the hacker disguised as an essentials developer name.

    no, you dont.

    your prank is completely unfunny, so please close it.
  13. Both Me and Elgarl, are in the example GroupManager file.
    Some people who use offline mode take advantage of this.

    Essentials has no backdoors of any description. KHobbits nor ElgarL would ever go on someones server and add themselves to a privileged rank. Additionally, skins are stored by name. Offline or not, if there is a skin matching the player's name, it will display. Additionally, this was a great story to read, I was laughing my ass off while reading it.

    Just another tragic tale of an offline mode server being screwed over by it's owners insistence on not playing legit.

    Ah, people <3

    Locked. Yet another example of why you should never run an offline mode server. You're asking for trouble.

    Clearly this was no force op (or force... moderator?) but rather a folly by the server administrator.

    Run online-mode=true folks, it is the only way to be safe.
