TeamSpeak 3 exploit patch released

Recommended Posts

This is a security alert to anyone who uses TeamSpeak 3 (whether it is on our server or any other server).

An exploit has been discovered recently that allows a dubious user to cause other users to crash their clients. Unlike the previous exploit that was server wide however, this one appears to be channel or user specific.

Thankfully there has been a hotfix released, although the downside is atm it is not available to the standard client users but only to those who have enabled the BETA Update Channel (Options->Application for those who wish to toggle it).

Therefore it is recommended that you patch up to this version asap. Unless you are really really against using a BETA client (you can turn it right off after updating to the hotfix security patch!) you should do this immediately. Either via Help->Check for updates, or via quitting and restarting the client (please note you may need to quit and restart the client after toggling to the BETA update channel).

Thank you.
