Battlefield 4 security exploit found (video)

A new security exploit allows attackers to crash any player in the game.

A new Battlefield 4 security exploit lets attackers target specific players on a server and force them to crash, according to numerous reports. The attackers exploit a vulnerability or glitch in the game, where any player can be forced to crash.

As the video above shows during a live Twitch stream, to the player it appears that several “No free Commander slot” messages appear, where after the game crashes to desktop. According to MP1st, it appears that this only affects servers where the Commander feature is enabled.

Attackers have been targeting those who live-stream on Twitch — they figure out what server the player is on, and force them to crash. It could also be used against regular players who happen to be playing well in a round, or just as a way of getting back at someone on the enemy team.

So far it seems that the Battlefield 4 security exploit is used only to troll other players, but this could lead to more serious security problems.

DICE and EA have yet to respond to this issue.

Sharing is caring!

    Of course they havent respond they are clueless about anything that goes on. Im starting to think its more DICE than it is EA now due to how things have been working on Titian Fall. Patches release in minutes of game launch to fix bugs and other balance updates with in weeks of game launch. DICE just needs to pass the torch to someone else and be taken out behind the barn to be shot.

    EA/DICE would never admit it, but most of these issues are due to the fact that DICE outsourced about 75% of the games development to external developers. Netcode, HUD, single-player, weapon implementation (not balancing), etc… were all outsourced, ofcourse DICE has no clue or ability to fix these things, they’d likely have to re-contract those developers and we all know EA is too busy swimming in our money to pay for that.

    Face it folks, Battlefield is a fun game to play with your friends but as a shooter you can take seriously, that ship has sailed. ‘Competitive’ play? BAHAHA on that netcode? With those weapon inbalances? With those lopsided designed maps? Well done DICE, I do say we ‘nailed it!
