check out http://www.planetquake.com/arena/rconfix/ for a patch to the
existing known rcon password of "tms" with a random one, which contains
a ", making the newly found backdoor unusable.  However, the best way to
fix this problem is still to filter id's subdomain(192.246.40.*) at your


Neither randomizing the password nor putting a double-quote in it will
prevent the rcon commmand from being accepted.  Just use '\042'.  Random
passwords can be exhaustively searched.  That'll just take a bit more
time.  Using '\000' in the password seems to confound Quake's ability to
check it.
