Mojang Release Minecraft Security update 1.8.5

Mojang has revealed the latest update to the PC version of Minecraft that fixes some “security issues” and various other small issues. What “security issues” it fixes, they have not released…

We are aware that revision 1.8.5 offers “better server validation for movement packets,” “invalid beacon packets no longer getting validated,” a fix for the exploit connected to signs and command blocks, and much more.

  • [Bug MC-80478] – Better server validation for movement packets
  • [Bug MC-80479] – Invalid beacon effects are not validated
  • [Bug MC-80480] – Certain attribute values are not bound
