Spotted as the malicious code is reported by security vendor Medical News Online, a variant of the popular free and open-source game Minecraft has been found to be a key component of an exploit kit that targets teens in the United States.
A screenshot of the “trouble on the Internet” exploit kit, which the hacker responsible for the exploit kit claims was developed by Spotted is posted to Reddit.
The screenshot was posted Thursday night by the security firm Cylence Labs, which is a subsidiary of US security firm Trend Micro.
The exploit kit in question is known as the “Mozilla Flash” exploit, according to Cylce’s security blog.
The name has since been changed to “Exploiter” by Cydjal, a hacker and security expert, to avoid confusion.
Cylce, which was founded in 2016, is best known for its malware detection and anti-virus software, according a blog post about the discovery of the exploit in the exploits.
Cylcce’s website lists the company as one of the world’s largest, and most highly-rated, security firms, with an average rating of 4.7.
Its security experts have since posted their own version of the tool on Reddit.
It was originally found in the popular Minecraft game, which it describes as a free-to-play MMO that can be played on the internet.
That game is owned by Microsoft.
The “Exploit Kit” was first spotted in the code that runs in Minecraft’s launcher, known as “Minecraft.exe.”
The exploit kit’s malware appears to target vulnerable Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 users.
Minecraft’s executable also contains the exploit, which can be downloaded from the game’s official Minecraft forum.
The exploits are likely used to infect victims with malicious programs or trojans, or malicious code that can run on a target machine.
“This exploit kit is designed to infect multiple victims on a single system, so that when one is infected with it, all the infected systems are infected with the exploit as well,” Cydje wrote in a blog posting Thursday night.
“We are aware of this exploit kit and are actively working on a patch.
We are not releasing a patch at this time.
We will release more information as it becomes available.”
The malware also has an ability to take over a victim’s computer without a user interaction, which could be used for spying.
“The exploit is also known to target Java-based users of Windows, Mac OS X and Linux,” the blog post said.
“If you are running one of these OS, this exploit will work as expected on all your infected systems.”
Spotted, which offers a free, open-sourced tool that is designed for testing and monitoring systems, also said in its blog post that the exploit had been detected in the game.
“Since the exploit was detected in Minecraft.exe, we have identified multiple exploits that were used to compromise the systems of a number of affected sites.
The exploits were also able to take control of systems remotely,” the company said.”
Our team has identified and blocked all known exploits in the exploit tool.
We have also been working with Cylace Labs to block the exploit and are currently working on blocking the exploit.”
It is unclear whether the exploit is used in other popular games, including Minecraft and World of Warcraft, or whether it is a new exploit.
Cydja said in his blog post Thursday night that Cylcy was working on an update to Minecraft to address the exploit.
