Runescape hackers can use double-spend glitches to generate trillions of dollars in-game currency and use part of the profits to buy bitcoin. This is indeed a very bad thing and will seriously affect the economic operation of Runescape as a professional Runescape Gold sale. We promise that all products purchased by players on RSGOLDB2C are safe sources, Buy RS3 Gold choose us.
According to a video posted by the popular YouTuber SirPugger, the attack started in November 2019, and the hackers undermined the economy of Old School Runescape by creating and using thousands of new accounts. Runescape's server responds to account overload by rolling back to the previous login point.
A hacker can use rollback by trading gold between two accounts, and only cancel the account that receives the gold. According to the video, the rollback will cause both accounts to hold gold, resulting in a double-spend attack.
Although Runescape publisher Jagex patched the Old School Runescape vulnerability, hackers were able to perform a similar double-flower attack on Runescape 3.
The video claimed that the hacker was able to continue the attack for a few days before Jagex was finally able to fix the rollback mechanism, during which time the company accumulated trillions of dollars in double-spend gaming currency.
The hackers tried to release the game currency through various channels, including gambling and exchange of bitcoin.
Some community members suggested that Jagex consider using Bitcoin or other crypto assets as its in-game currency, and use blockchain technology to resist double-spend attacks. Runescape does not prohibit players from trading. If you have trading needs, you can Buy Runescape Gold at rsgoldb2c.com, which is safe and reliable. The behavior in the article is undesirable.
