New Hack on Quake 3 Engine Games
Today, on milw0rm.com, a hacker nicknamed Landser has released a hack that exploits a serious leak in games based on the Quake 3 Engine. It grants hackers full access to take over your computer.
Technically, the leak creates a unsuspicious "boundary error" when sending malformed messages from the gameserver to a client during the remapShader process. Once a buffer overflow occurs, the computer is fully exposed to any type of activities. GGL - NEWS ARTICLE
