I'm running a 10VS10 dedicated server and one of the constant issue I'm having now is the server will suddenly freeze without any error log, pop-up window or whatsoever.

This happened maybe after 10 or 15mins later into the game and usually is when a player connected to the server then it just freeze and everyone get disconnected.

On the server console, you won't know your server already freeze with everyone disconnected until you typed something on the console and then it will be flooded with below messages:

STEAMAUTH Client <NAME> received failure code 6
<NAME> Disconnect by NO Steam Logon
STEAMAUTH Client <NAME> received failure code 6
<NAME> Disconnect by NO Steam Logon
STEAMAUTH Client <NAME> received failure code 6
<NAME> Disconnect by NO Steam Logon
STEAMAUTH Client <NAME> received failure code 6
<NAME> Disconnect by NO Steam Logon
STEAMAUTH Client <NAME> received failure code 6
<NAME> Disconnect by NO Steam Logon
STEAMAUTH Client <NAME> received failure code 6
<NAME> Disconnect by NO Steam Logon
STEAMAUTH Client <NAME> received failure code 6
<NAME> Disconnect by NO Steam Logon
STEAMAUTH Client <NAME> received failure code 6
<NAME> Disconnect by NO Steam Logon

I'm not sure if 1 of my many plugins is causing this, I'm still filtering out batch by batch of my plugins to test it out.

Anybody know what could be the cause and how to resolve this?

Please help.

Hmm, I have two guesses:

1. Bad coding in a plugin.
2. A new(?) exploit that needs urgent action.
