Blizzard Reports Diablo II Bug
9:09 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

The Adrenaline Vault has noted a recent posting by Blizzard regarding a bug in their RPG Diablo II that poses a possible threat to Hardcore characters. Here's their official statement:

We have been informed that people are using a message spamming
bug in Diablo II that can cause Hardcore characters to die. We
are implementing a fix soon, but in the interim, please password
protect your Hardcore games to prevent unwanted individuals from
entering your game and possibly getting your Hardcore character
For all those Hardcore players out there, make sure you follow Blizzard's advice and password protect your valuable characters. We all know just how many spoilers and troublemakers are out there that would love to take advantage of a security hole like this one.

In related news, the new version 1.0.6 for Mac OS has introduced a bug that may be a result of the increasingly strong copy protection techniques Blizzard seems to be employing. As of 1.0.6 the game will no longer detect the Diablo II Play Disk if it is mounted in an external FireWire drive, regardless of whether it is the original or a copy. We've passed this information along to Blizzard and hopefully it will be addressed in a future update.
