Hello guys. I have a dedicated server with Windows server 2019 and I want to host a CS GO server for someone.

I also have my stuff running there, some websites and files. Is there any security risk if I host that CS GO server?

Can source mod plugins list and read files from disk outside cs go server folder? Can it get info about running processes or any information about the machine ?

The answer to what you should do about security shouldn't actually have anything to do with what MM:S, SM, or plugins for either can do. You should not trust any of those things, or the game server itself, to do what they say they do or are intended to do. You should always run everything with the minimum required permissions.

I don't know how I can limit permissions for srcds ...

I have docker for windows installed but i'm not sure if cs go server can run on it.
