Subject: UT2003 Demo DoS Fix

You may remember a short while back that there was a flaw in Epic Games's UT2003 (and not to mention an entire slur of other games) that would allow for some rather nasty DoS exploitations. Well, looks as if they've updated the Unreal Technology page with a fix for the nasty bug. Word:

All server admins running version 2206 demo servers should download this replacement IpDrv.dll (62KB) which addresses a denial-of-service attack. Demo clients should also apply the patch, as it is possible for malicious servers to cause clients to crash. Thanks to Auriemma Luigi at PivX for reminding me that the UT2003 demo had not been patched to address this issue. We'll have a Linux version in the next day or two.
I imagine this will make it into the next non-Beta relase. One less DoS attack is a good thing for those who prefer a faster Internet.
