Netrek Vulnerability! Yay!

A vulnerability has been reported in Netrek Vanilla Server, which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to cause a DoS (Denial of Service) or compromise a vulnerable system.”

Why does this excite me? Because I haven’t thought about (or played) Netrek for years. It’s like seeing an advisory for Nethack.

Lately, my gaming has been pretty low-tech: Dopewars and Wall Street Raider. Much to Sony’s dismay, good games don’t require crazy high tech graphics. Just ask Nintendo. 🙂

  1. There’s still only one game (unless you count programming, which makes me one sick weirdo) that has ever kept my attention: NetHack.

    I just wish there was a better MacOS X version. I can never get the arrow keys to work quite right in the command line version, and NetHack with a GUI is just, well, icky.
