Security of custom game servers

Recommended Posts

This is kind of a hypothetical question, but.. Not that security of a server I do not run would be important to me, but since my server is database driven, could there be a way to allow users to create their own database and have my server aplication interact with their database? I said the question is hypothetical because I don't want to run the server aplication on a server of mine and query from a users database, that would mean I would have to allow the users to host a server from their machines. If I allow the users to have the exe then its highly possible the exe would be decompiled. That would cause a lot of security issues, I think. So is it even possible to allow a user to use his/her database and his/her bandwidth but also know that the server exe would not be decompiled?

I dont see your question. If you allow users to have ANY exe that has a potential to be altered for cheating puposes then it is obvious that this will happen, theres no 'highly possible' about it
