Commanders!

 

A vulnerability has been discovered that allows third parties to inject malicious code into replays. This code is executed automatically when opening the compromised replays via the client. This means that your system may be at risk when you download potentially modified replays from the internet. This vulnerability is going to be fixed in Update 9.5 for World of Tanks and Update 1.7 for World of Warplanes.

 

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that replays provided by players on the official forums may also be dangerous. If you are not sure that the replay comes from a reliable source, please avoid downloading and watching it. You should also avoid watching any previously downloaded replays.

Old news to some, maybe.  I've never heard about it until now.

Doesn't matter. This news is old because everybody interested already knows about it. And by "everybody interested" I mean people who wanted to use this vulnerability to attack players.

This info was old even before it was published on reddit and then on FTR. This vulnerability was found in May so there was plenty of time for "nasty people" to use it. And yet, somehow, WG still managed to be 3 days late to the party, after this issue was published openly. This is bad.

 

They either should keep a secret until they developed a solution (0.9.5 patch) or announce it right after finding the problem. Current situation isn't great because some random player found this vulnerability - "everybody interested" probably knew about it even earlier.

 We would like to draw your attention

 Then maybe post it on the portal?

THIS is a PRIME Example of the amateurish activities of WoT EU Office.

A MASSIVE Hole in security and ALL THEY DO is say a little bit here.

DISGRACFULL and sloppy but it seems typical,

Yeah, so WG EU is a little bit late with the warning, as WG RU, ASIA, NA placed this on their frontpage weeks ago. Also warnings on FTR weeks ago.
