Researchers: Battlefield Play4Free Vulnerable

Ars Technica has details on a security vulnerability in Battlefield Play4Free reported from the Black Hat security conference they say could be used to hijack the computers of users of Windows XP and 2003. Word is: "The proof-of-concept exploit, demonstrated last week at the Black Hat security conference in Amsterdam, allows attackers to surreptitiously execute malicious code on default systems running Windows XP or Windows 2003 that have the Play4Free title installed. There are close to 1 million players of the first-person shooter game, and about 39 percent of Windows users are still on XP." They have word from EA that they are "investigating" this report, but do not have immediate comment.
