How to Tell the Difference Between Whether an Admin or a Hacker is Stealing


#1

Before and after.


Just set up a trap like this one and wait. You should include a sign that says “do not steal” and label your safes/chests with something worth going after. If the trapdoor is broken, it’s a higher chance that an admin did it, because the hacker would just hack their way out.


#2

not really that bullet proof, an admin could just dig around or not dig the door at all


#3

Can’t admins go through any iron door anyway? You need to add an iron door below that iron door too (make sure there’s an air blovk, so they can’t get out.


#4

I believe any “smart” admin could just go around or find a loophole to hide their evidence. But on top of all that, why would you have admined someone who would steal from you in the first place? I mean, I know this thread is suppose to be helpin other people spot bad admins/hackers, but havin malicious people admined? I think it’ll be time to reconsider staff.


#5

Well it could just work as a normal trap.


#6

Yeah, that’s a really big flaw.


#7

There was a rule of “no blocks that are hard to remove” on this particular server.
I had to get around that using iron doors/trapdoors


#8

I thought of that. But what you can’t see in the picture is that I placed the iron trapdoors so that they are in a vertical line, and the iron doors horizontally. You can’t exactly enter an iron door from the top, or enter a trapdoor from the side. They would have to break their way through.
