This morning the TeamSpeak developers addressed the latest performance issues with TeamSpeak3 servers resulting in a very high system load with a hotfix. We will inform you with further informations in the hours to come.
Here the full message from the TeamSpeak developers:
TS3 ATHPs - Server 184.108.40.206 - Released ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Dear ATHP, In the recent weeks we were facing a new DOS attack against TeamSpeak 3 servers. This attack interferes with the way the server handles new client connections and causes very high CPU usages. To solve this issue completely, we will have to make some major changes in the server and client code. Today we released a server hotfix version 220.127.116.11 to reduce the impact of the DOS attacks. A new serverinstance variable named serverinstance_pending_connections_per_ip will allow reducing the number of uncompleted new connections from a single IP and therefore avoid the CPU usage peaks. * So please go to http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads to download and install the 18.104.22.168 server. * Login to the query interface with a serveradmin account. * Issue "instanceedit serverinstance_pending_connections_per_ip=2" command (you may use other low values but we recommend setting it to 2 or 4. Setting this value to 0 will disable the DOS protection). Please note that the server comes with DOS protection disabled per default. Enabling this DOS protection might allow attackers to start another DOS attack against a particular TeamSpeak user. This requires the attacker to know the IP address of that user. By sending fake connection packets with spoofed IP addresses of that particular TeamSpeak user, he may make it impossible for that user to connect. This threat however may be seen as low. The next client and server version release will address both issues. [ PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL NOTIFICATION ] Thank you, The TeamSpeak Team
The TeamSpeak development team has announced the availability of version 22.214.171.124 of the TeamSpeak 3 Client.
This version is a hotfix that fixes an issue with the sound pack selection, which caused the default female sound pack to be selected when you did not modify your bookmarks since version 3.0.1 of the TeamSpeak client. If you already updated to the 3.0.9 release you will unfortunately have to set the sound pack for each bookmark in the bookmark manager or use the new button that was added to the notifications area in the options dialog to automatically set all your bookmarks to use the sound pack selected in the notification options.
If you have not yet updated to the 3.0.9 release you won’t have to do anything.
Here’s the full change log for version 126.96.36.199:
The TeamSpeak development team has announced the availability of version 3.0.9 of the TeamSpeak 3 Client.
This new release comes with a new storage system for the TeamSpeak settings, which are now saved as a database instead of using multiple ini files. When upgrading to this version, old settings will be automatically converted. The now unused ini files are moved into a backup folder in the TeamSpeak config directory. Also this release includes many improvements like more hotkeys, better support for joystick and gamepad hotkeys on Windows and many minor corrections.
Here’s the full change log for version 3.0.9:
The TeamSpeak development team has announced the availability of version 3.0.8 of the TeamSpeak 3 Client.
This release introduces support for DNS Service records (SRV) in addition to our existing TSDNS system. In addition, version 3.0.8 fixes more than 10 bugs and increases the functionality of several existing features. For example, it’s now possible to set a Host Banner without having to specify a remote server using our built-in file transfer capabilities.
Here’s the full change log for version 3.0.8:
Today, TeamSpeak24 was officially appointed as authorized TeamSpeak provider (“ATHP” (Authorized Teamspeak Hosting Provider)) by the TeamSpeak licensor “Triton CI & Associates” and officially starts operating today.
With the concept to offer the cheapest TeamSpeak server with perfect voice quality and useful add-ons, TeamSpeak24 is set to shape the market and enable as many customers as possible to enjoy an ideal service; also persons who were not able to afford an own TeamSpeak server to this date.
