I have a dedicated server which is installed the Red5 Media Server that AVChat installed it, but I'm having trouble with hackers attacking and changing the licenses of created instances.
How can I do to not suffer this attack?
Example: The guy will attack the chats and change the permit for an invalid or a smaller users, thus not be able to enter the room.
I will post a picture of how the screen is when you do this.

First try to reset your license key by deleting the license key file from your Red5 installation folder ( Then add your license key in the file (add the license key after licenseKey=). While there, you can also disallow access from localhost (set allowLocalhostConnections to false) and allow admin connection only from certain IP address.
