    Dont know, maybe someone should make a news or an announcement to be careful with new custom maps, since a bug in WC3 that allows executing machine code was revealed earlier today.

    Proof-of-concept map (run in windowed mode)

    SFilip also made an announcement on TheHelper.net dealing with this bug.

    Comodo seems to detect it, so I still feel somewhat safe.

    So download virus tested maps from big sites not random maps from battle.net as surely that's the place they will hit first.

    Guys, don't you see how awesome this is? Executing machine code makes it able to do JUST ANYTHING :D It's as if there are no limits to wc3 mapmaking anymore :D

    Virus testing the map file won't help. It might be detected while running it in game through a virus scanner if your AV has good enough heuristics and detects the possible buffer overflow attack, but there's certainly no guarentee of that.

    Gentlemen, I think we found our cure for the 'DotA' infection that roams on Battle.net.
