Yes, it’s illegal.
A server backdoor is when a player or group of players bypasses the normal operation of the server to gain access to exploits that can be abused by specific players.
If you still wish to set up your own private server, do so at your own risk as we cannot offer support for home networks or privately created servers. Here’s a guide to help you create a server for your friends to join and play together!
What is a backdoor Trojan? Backdoor Trojans are malicious software programs designed to provide unwanted access for remote attack. Remote attackers can send commands or take complete control of a compromised computer.
At least 1GB of RAM to run the server ( -Xmn 128M -Xmx 1G ). If you are using Windows or a desktop-based Linux distribution, the computer should have at least 1 GB of additional physical RAM to avoid lagging the graphics on the desktop.

Hackers can use a backdoor to install all kinds of malware on your computer. Spyware is a type of malware that, once installed on your system, collects information about you, the websites you visit on the Internet, the things you download, the files you open, usernames, passwords and anything else of value.
A logic bomb is a set of malicious code intentionally injected into a program to harm a network when certain conditions are met.
Backdoors can look like normal PHP code or obfuscated (deliberately obfuscated to make code ambiguous) and hidden. A backdoor can be injected into a valid file as just a short line of code that looks fairly innocent. Or a backdoor can be a standalone file.
Once installed, backdoors are very difficult to sort out. Traditionally, detection involves using software scanners to look for known malware signatures in a server file system.
