Description

Players from the MMO TERA will be in an uproar recently because of a newly-discovered exploit by incorporating very serious potential uses, including remote execution of malicious code with the in-game chat. That means - theoretically - someone could remotely install malware on your pc simply by being logged in Tera PC Items while doing so as you.

Developers En Masse Entertainment have responded by completely disabling all chat function, apart from guild chat, before exploit is usually properly fixed.

As players on Reddit have lined out, TERA’s chat interface employs HTML, which reveals all sorts of potential problems. Sending a image through could allow anyone to collect the IP address of anyone with a server. Alternatively, measures may very well be taken to crash people’s game clients, or potentially even delete their characters and items.

Most seriously, the exploit could allow code being executed, including any type of malware - viruses, keyloggers, spyware, plus more. Concerningly, it appears to be this exploit may be theoretically simple for a very long time - possibly years - plus the specifics of its potential impact are just now coming over to light.

En Masse claim that “as in this time, we've got no evidence the vulnerability has exploited of these ways or that any player information has become compromised.” With chat disabled the situation should be mitigated for the time being, but proceed with caution if you’ve logged into TERA in https://www.mmoah.com/tera/tera-items
