Hacked Books

“As weird as this sounds, some of the newer hacked clients have a feature called CommandBook which allows them to hide commands inside the text of a minecraft book. If you were the admin and clicked on the text in such a modified book you could be running a command such as /op in the worst case.” –SVDragster @ CanaryMod

The text can be absolutely random, it might look like nothing malicious. Worst case for a player you could be giving them access to your home and chests etc.

To my knowledge these books can’t do anything as malicious as acquiring your account information/login details or getting access to anything outside of minecraft. However, it never hurts to be cautious.

So, be careful about reading books given to you by random strangers and don’t click on any fancy links in one no matter what riches they promise you. This is not a built in minecraft feature and it is not a plugin feature we use at Briarcraft.

    svDragster has informed the Canary community that just opening these books can execute the code in them. So we hope you will understand that crafting writable books is temporarily being blocked at BriarCraft until Mojang releases a security patch for this issue. If you try to craft a book, the materials are unfortunately lost. You can be assured that any written books found on BriarCraft have been generated by us for the purposes of server use. Thank you for your understanding on this issue. We feel this is the best action to take to protect you and the server.
