Mojang has released another security patch for Minecraft updating the game to version 1.8.5.
A previous security update was released in April bringing the game to version 1.8.4. It was released after a vulnerability was found which allowed users to remotely crash servers.
The update fixed reported security issues along with bug fixes such as issues with invalid beacon effects, better server validation for movement packets and more.
Mojang states the patch is fully compatible with all previous versions of 1.8 and highly recommends updating to 1.8.5 “as soon as possible.”
A list of notable fixes are posted below with more information available through the developer blog.
