Why server side games generally can't be hacked

We get many question daily asking us how to hack games such as Clash of Clans this article explains why server side games generally can’t be hacked

Overview –

• The Server – This party is responsible for serving content.
• The Client – This party requests content from the Server, and displays them to the user. In most cases, the client is a web browser.

Each side’s programming, refers to code which runs at the specific machine, the server’s or the client’s.

Server Side Code –

Server side is the code that resides at web server.
For every client request code is executed at server side and result is send to the client in simple HTML format.
Performance is lower than client side code due to server round trips.
Client cannot see the business logic though it is stored on server.

Client Side Code –

Client side code is reside at client’s browser itself. It is executed at
client side only. User can easily see the code by View – > Source option.
It is generally used in validation form like text field is empty or not, email address validation etc. It is faster than server side code
Server side code is responsible to execute and provide
the executed code to the browser at the client side. The executed code only have the
values or the results that are executed on the server.

There are many programs out there that claim to be able to hack games such as Clash of Clans, these are all fake, here’s why:

Any so called ‘gem hack’ will not work because the data is stored server side, so editing the data client side will then need to be confirmed server side.

In other words, there is no way to hack such a game. If there were a way, somebody would have figured it out, spread the information, and then it would have to have been patched rapidly. These kinds of games are specifically designed for people to not be able to hack into them. In order to do so you would have to gain access to the server and alter the information that contains things like how many gems you have. This in itself is a near impossible task because this information is sensitive and secure. It’s like if you were trying to gain credit card information off of a website like Amazon. It’s extremely unlikely and illegal that you’ll find a crack, but leaks do occur from time to time.

I Used Lucky Patcher On Bloons Tower Defense Battles And I Have What I Got But When I Play I’m On A Private Server So I Can’t Find Anyone To Go Against Do You Know If There Is A Way To Go Back To The Regular Servers I Have Deleted The App Multiple Times It Wouldn’t Work. Do I Have To Delete Lucky Patcher For Me To Go Back To The Regular Servers. If There Is Please Help I Can’t Do Anything Now. I Should Have Never Done This.

Use bluestacks and play coc on it and try hacking with cheat engine you can change values but 1sec later you wil be kicked out with a synic error meaning server parameters are not corosponding to the clients parameters…… One thing for sure people coded the game people can dismantle and exploit it……….. Just time and patience is needed

robert April 6, 2016 - 1:34 pm

It can be done not by every tom dick and harry….. You as the player is the client the gems gold and so is server sided so you wil need to change the client parmeters and inject in the server to work here comes the plot you dont have adminstrative privs so the server wil just put it aside wih a fals reply meaning it would not take the data up….. To get a true reply you wil have to lget admin on that server meaning coming past security ,encryption and so……….. Witch is not the the time worth………..

So much name calling, pessimism, & disrespect for others. And you disapprove of the character of our leaders ???

stu January 14, 2016 - 11:52 am

once you have found the parameters and the admin p/w you can hack what you want. Yes security is tight but if people can hack into NASA and the pentagon I am sure a little game is not a problem. You can also right a script to run along side the server script which trciks it into thinking what in game stats you have changed and this is not traceable.

Anonymous January 14, 2016 - 11:50 am

Once you have found the parameters and the admin password for a server side game then you can do what you want.

guykat January 13, 2016 - 1:00 am

Okay, quick question…; if you were to change the “gem” count server sidedly, would you be able to actually use them still?

You hacked client side not the server side that’s why ur gems didn’t get updated in the server.

zHii December 30, 2015 - 1:26 am

What a dumb person have you read the whole article? Server need to confirn your changes so if they see that nothing really happens server will ignore it.

Ayan Das May 24, 2016 - 9:50 am

It will be very kind of you if you explain the process.

Anonymous October 8, 2015 - 8:20 pm

Just a thought, you morons do realise that almost every single company and website all have servers. If people can get into the servers for home depot to steal millions of people’s info for their actual accounts, then I’m pretty sure game servers can be modified. All you fucking dummies need to realize that just because you and I are too stupid with “code” doesn’t mean someone can’t do it or it can’t be done. If it can be written to keep me out, then it can be modified to let me in. That’s like putting a pull door on a building then telling everyone it’s push only, someone will eventually figure it out, nothings impossible..

Kelzy September 27, 2015 - 3:03 am

whether it is on my phone or not i dnt care….. All i knw is some can be hacked….. Those that claim they cant be hacked can also be hacked it only need a little bit of hard work….. I hacked different server sided game, i mean they were totally online games and i hacked them with just lucky patcher….. Whereas i tried other hacking tool on them but they didnt work only lucky patcher did….. And those lucky patcher could not hack can still be hacked someway….. It will only take time and hardwork to learn how to hack them….. So dnt say server sided are impossible to hack….. Its bullshit cos i just did one today…….

christy December 26, 2015 - 8:42 am

So here you idiot mobile gamers are not only throwing away money on terrible freemium games, you can’t even play them without connection to the server? What a worthless waste of money these games are. The only good thing about them is that they take money from idiots and leave them poor. I can only pray the stupid fools who throw away money on such worthless garbage lose their homes due to their idiotic spending habits.

Server Side Includes. If you know how to write code, then you can write server side includes to hack the system. It takes time, but once the correct code is found, it will work. This is how hackers hack many sites. Only if the security on the site blocks SSI’s, can it not be done. And really, all that work for a game, while it is possible, really isn’t worth the effort.

Anonymous December 26, 2015 - 3:07 pm

Server side includes are just in-line expanded blocks of html running simplistic single objective cgi’s; you’d need to be able to edit the original html document to insert one… But if you have that level of access to the server, the last thing your going to do is add SSI’s to someone’s html… You already have access to the machine;

Anonymous April 8, 2015 - 2:18 am

I beg to differ. There are hacks on CoC currently… Just have to dig a little harder. Assuming we are talking about ‘hacking’ to manipulate the system and do something it isn’t intended to do. The Gems are for the kids who don’t have patience.

Irmão MoDz April 7, 2015 - 4:44 pm

Concordo” talvez o servidor não seja hackeavel, mais o que nao inpede que ele seja burlado atraves da client :) , pois se voce trabalhar em cima de uma regra conseguirar burla o sistema e obter joias gratis!

Darkwalker April 7, 2015 - 5:23 am

To the author:
Before you say that “it cannot be hacked”, you should read about the packet recording, editing, and then replaying these packets….

Note, I’m not criticizing anybody. Just saying that in some cases, it is possible… :)

Use freedom app to hack gems/coins of server base game like clash of clans and enjoy

Sanjoy April 7, 2015 - 7:57 am

Which application name plz for getting gold gem..etc

Neeraj April 7, 2015 - 8:20 am

Is it true? Using freedom app we can hack Coc.!!
I tried many times. Many site many application.bt its all waste….. I think hacking Coc was impossible in india

hassan April 7, 2015 - 9:08 am

This won’t help you because if you are using freedom you that will change the data of your game , not the data of server .

Senpai April 7, 2015 - 11:46 am

Are you fucking retarded?

Did you even bother reading through this post?

Freedom is an IAP Crack.

It falsifies the information sent to the server to make it “appear” as if you’ve normally purchased something.

You can’t use freedom for serversided games as everything is logged on the server.

It will fail the request and nothing will happen.

Irmão MoDz April 7, 2015 - 4:45 pm

Freedom not work

Prashant March 21, 2015 - 11:49 pm

Who ever write this article, are awesome. Its impossible to explain some people that hacking is not what they see on televisions. You have to know the different programming languages to do it and it is not easy as it looks.

Thanks :)

Anonymous (Truly) May 26, 2015 - 3:41 pm

You Sir, are the world’s biggest NOOB.
All websites require server side applications to authenticate users yet they are hacked somehow. That’s what cracking/(your hacking) means literally.

Hamza March 18, 2015 - 11:21 am

i agree with you .server game could not be hacked i’ll try it on Hay Day through cydia Jail break but when i apply on it. game was lose totally and start from level 1 that was horrible thing for me so dont be try to hack server sides if you reah at higher level and server side game could not be hacked also .

Mujahid March 18, 2015 - 10:21 am

Oh nice (Y) Thanks

Akash March 18, 2015 - 7:55 am

I would like to tell you that it is possible to hack server-side games..A very popular website name Onhax has hacked it & we have also hacked many server side games like Social Wars , Cityville , Dragon City.. If you update it on clients side then the server will confirm it..

CJ March 18, 2015 - 1:26 pm

Onhax game progress cannot be synced with actual COC server and its a real waste of time.

Akash March 21, 2015 - 6:29 am

I know it can’t be synced but as you said it is not hackable & it is not like all server side games cannot be hacked , many can be hacked , like in social wars you can change the string cash to gold & then you can use the gold as cash..

Prashant March 21, 2015 - 11:43 pm

Dude its not like a server side game is hacked. its only create a virtual server on your own device. As it mentioned above all the game points are stored in database and you only can hack this game if you can hack the gaming database. So, as a result. It is impossible.

Anonymous December 26, 2015 - 4:27 pm

Pls reply me nd help me…….

satya April 24, 2016 - 4:09 am
