Minecraft gets' its' very own security flaw!


A security flaw has been discovered in Minecraft’s code that could give perpetrators the ability to crash servers remotely. The vulnerability exploits the client’s privilege to send data to the server about the game’s inventory slots. The client then overloads the server with complex packets. The flaw was discovered by programmer Ammar Askar.
