Bethesda Game Vulnerability

A post on Joe's Security Blog outlines an exploit found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim that could be used to crash Bethesda's RPG sequel. Far from being restricted to that game, word is this can be found in every Elder Scrolls game since Morrowind, and the author states: "Iím certain the same vulnerability lies in Fallout 3 and Oblivion however I was too lazy to install to show you all, but you get the idea." The good news is that this would not be an easy vulnerability to exploit, particularly since none of the effected games is played online, but the author expresses concern this could show up in The Elder Scrolls Online: "This online capability might just make remote exploitation of my 0day feasible. Why? If the same vulnerability is present in Morrowind released in 2002 is still present in Skyrim (released 2012), the odds are in my favor that the same vulnerability will be in the latest game release." Thanks Slashdot.
