A report from the POC 2012 Conference in Seoul, South Korea shows that the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 and the Crytek 3 game engines have security issues that make all titles based on them vulnerable.
The report, as quoted by ComputerWorld
, does not specify the exact vulnerabilities, after making it clear that the two engines have separate security flaws, but ReVuln, a security consulting firm, has demonstrated the issues.
It seems that the newly launched Black Ops 2 might also have security problems, mainly linked to the various multiplayer modes.
ReVuln expects to get an official commission from Activision to investigate and fix the problems.
A security breach linked to the multiplayer modes might be very damaging to the sales prospects of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, which is expected to shatter records during this fall.
