People are apparently exploiting the wwwdl command to cause all clients on the server to be dropped with "illegible server command"

Here's a quick and dirty workaround server admins can use to prevent this:

1) Open etded.exe / .x86 in your favorite binary safe editor.

2) Find the string
"SV_WWWDownload: unexpected wwwdl %s"

3) Change the %s to %x

4) Profit!

Ty benny for pointing this exploit out.

edit: clarification
edit: linux works too, as expected.
