    This is quite weird.

    Its some loser in Wisconsin hosting 1,000's of servers on his computer, and when you join one of the servers it spams your gmod folder with this, it sets your mouse sensitivity to 0 and when you in the server the whole screen is yellow.

    haha that's actually kinda funny. So did he hack it? And if so do you think he will get in any real trouble?

    He didn't hack any servers and according to the EULA he can host as many servers as he wants, I found this for you to read.

    1. He is not doing any of those things.
    2. Each of those servers only send data when the server browser requests it, and every five minutes when the servers tell the master server they are still running. He does not send any additional data other than what is needed to display the server title, gametype, and player count.
