Did I miss something?
I thought the whole point of the server authentication was to prevent unauthorized clients. I assume that an authorized client implements its own CD key checks, and that to get it to work at all, you'd have to modify the client to bypass at least its own checks, before you could do anything else--this is typical of pirated closed-source software anyway.
With such a client, the server could return anything--TRUE, FALSE, NULL, or 3.141592653 signed by $DEITY's PGP key--and the client would just ignore it.
