| Modern Warfare 3 and CryENGINE 3 Vulnerable - briefly|
|(hx) 03:34 PM EST - Nov,12 2012 |
| Luigi Auriemma and Donato Ferrante of ReVuln also showed a vulnerability in the CryEngine 3 gaming platform:
Researchers have found a serious vulnerability in the game "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3," and another in the CryEngine 3 graphics platform on which many games run.
The first problem the pair presented is a denial-of-service vulnerability in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, made by Activision. Auriemma showed in a video how the server administrator received a warning when he remotely crashed the server running the game.
Auriemma masked some details in his presentation so as to not give too much information away, but he and Ferrante are planning to release advisories on the two vulnerabilities next Tuesday, the launch day for "Black Ops II," the latest game in the Call of Duty series. Ferrante said they are willing to work with Activision but aren't going to volunteer the information, since their research is part of their business.
The second problem relates to CryEngine 3, a graphics engine developed by Crytek for use in its own and other companies' games.
Auriemma's demonstration showed an attack on CryEngine 3 within the game Nexuiz. The attack, at the server level, enabled him to create a remote shell on a game-player's computer.
In the demonstration, Auriemma caused a graphic of cat riding a rocket to be displayed on the victim's computer.

|Guess what. Windows is vulnerable, Flash is vulnerable, Firefox is vulnerable, Diablo is vulnerable.
In fact, every single piece of software is vulnerable - but nobody bothered to research those yet.
