It has come to our attention, that it is VERY simple to abuse the N-line of a peer, and making a card look like a local when it actually isn’t:
The hack works as follows:
From newcs to CCcam sharing cost one downhop (hop0 in newcs to hop1 in CCcam). The trick is simple as genial what overules that lost one downhop.
The standard way with loosed one downhop:
N: 127.0.0.1 portnumber test tv 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14
With that 256 trick is the card shared without loosing one downhop:
N: 127.0.0.1 portnumber test tv 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 256
This “trick” works in every CCcam version to date. It has some advanteges (you can control the number of hops you share), but also one very big disadvantage: People can show those card as a local, when it’s actually NOT a local.
This is the preventitive measures:
If your peer who uses that trick got often new cards as local that is one symptom. One way is if he restart his CCcam or update it and you see that his some locals appear later as his other/s card/s, then these later appeared cards is possible showed as local with that trick. And if that peer uses his peers N: lines as his local with that trick then these cards ecm is higher as usual, because the ecm makes 2 connection over the net and it = as u get ecm from hop2.
Please be VERY carefull when handing out N-Lines. Make sure you trust that peer! Keep checking on the forum if those users are not posting in the CCcam Local section, with your card!
Or maybe even better:
“Withdraw all your N lines and use this “trick”, you will be 100% safe YOUR card wont be misused and you have total control.
People who demand N lines, you will be the judge of that if you agree, it’s your card and you decide how you want to share and keep control of it”
Be careful with Those People
