By Simon Hradecky, created Thursday, April 08, 2018 08:01:26A new exploit for the Skyrim enchantment system has been discovered by security researchers who have been working on it for over a year.
The latest vulnerability was disclosed on Monday, April 1.
The exploit is one of the most serious to hit the game in years.
This exploit will allow them to “crack any enchantment in the game that uses a script” by exploiting the script-based code that allows enchantments to be unlocked.
It also allows them to gain access to any “exploitable” character in the world.
The flaw, however, is not restricted to the Skyrim game.
A separate exploit has been posted by a developer who previously claimed to have cracked the same vulnerability in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The exploit is very similar to one published last week by an unknown group calling itself “Molten Core.”
Molten Core also claimed to be behind the exploits of several popular game titles including Destiny, Battlefield 4 and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
“Skyrim is an amazing game and a beautiful world, and we love it,” the developer wrote in the post.
“It’s so important that we give it our all to make sure that players can enjoy Skyrim without worrying about their enchantments being exploited.”
The developer also said that the game was the only major game to offer “a complete list of enchantments” for sale.
“We have taken great care in our research and analysis of the Skyrim enchanting system to ensure that the exploit we describe does not pose any risk to players,” the exploit developer, “Duke”, wrote in a statement to Ars.
“The fact that the developers who released this exploit are so confident that they can exploit the system in such a way, shows how much of a priority they place on protecting their users’ data.
