Product Update - Valve
Aug 21, 2009
Updates to Team Fortress 2 and Day of Defeat: Source have been released. The updates will be applied automatically when your Steam client is restarted. The specific changes include:

Orange Box Engine
  • Fixed an exploit that allowed files to be uploaded to the server at arbitrary locations in the file system
  • Fixed a server crash caused by a client packet claiming to be an HLTV client when HLTV is disabled on the server
  • Fixed a server crash caused by spoofing a client disconnect message
  • Fixed a server crash caused by sending malformed reliable subchannel data
  • Fixed a server crash related to unbounded settings on some convars

Team Fortress 2
  • Bullet spread algorithm changed to fire a bullet right down the crosshair under these circumstances:
    • The first bullet of a spread weapon (except for rapid fire spread weapons like the minigun)
    • The first bullet of a non-spread weapon if it's been >1.25 seconds since firing
  • Added a "Disable HTML MOTDs" option to the multiplayer->advanced dialog
    • Added "motdfile_text" convar to servers, which allows them to specify a text file that’s shown instead of the HTML MOTD to clients who've turned on this option
  • Fixed radius damage not tracing out of enemies when the explosion occurs within them
    • Fixes rockets & grenades doing no splash damage when fired point blank into enemies
  • Added missing snowpuff particles for DX8 players (honest)

  • Fixed the "The Big Hurt" achievement not being awarded for players who already have the required count
  • Fixed sv_pure not reloading the map's custom particle file
    • Custom particle effects contained within maps must now be placed in the \particles directory
  • Fixed another case where items weren't being validated properly in class loadout slots
