Description

I found a neat bug in the voting module, which allowed me to manipulate the map battles. This affects ONLY the map battles and not the veto/noveto system. I guess just copy and paste will do the job.

How to exploit the map battle (just for reproduction)

  1. Grab a sauerbraten client and connect to nooblounge.net (every server should be affected).
  2. Cause a map battle, or wait until there is one, you needn't wait for your own.รค
  3. During the battle, vote for your preferred map. If there is either no decision or you think the other map sucks, try the following:
    1. Reconnect fast
    2. Vote again
    3. Repeat it, but only as far you won't get banned because of reconnect flood.
