Can computers built in minecraft be used to hijack hosts?



  • As people build more powerful computers in minecraft which can then run programs, is there a way to use those computers to run programs that hijack the host in some way?

    Possible contest example would be to use a computer built in minecraft to create a network connection from that computer to a specified target.

    There's a lot between inside the game and the target, but in principle is a computer inside a gameworld not much different than a virtual machine and its relationship to its host?

    Will this become exploitable and worth considering?



  • That just sounds like a Minecraft exploit with extra steps...

    If that ever becomes possible, then the issue is not the "computer" that was built inside, but the vulnerability in Minecraft to allow it. And at that point, you just trigger the vulnerability. No need to go through the work to build a computer...
