Bug: Aggressing mobs won't attack players using writing buffers
Danger: Medium - Minor exploit condition
Found by: Valcados
Fixed by: Valcados

---

update.c, aggr_update

Locate:
      if( d->connected != CON_PLAYING || ( wch = d->character ) == NULL )
         continue;


Change to:
      if( ( d->connected != CON_PLAYING && d->connected != CON_EDITING ) || ( wch = d->character ) == NULL )
         continue;


Though not very obvious, being in a writing buffer can be exploited in dangerous areas quite easily. Invididuals group together. Decide on who should "tank" and then all but the tank will go into a writing buffer. The leader can then drag the rest of the players into an aggressive mob and guarantee they are the one to be attacked. While this fix may seem like it will punish people who use editors whenever they feel like, they should have no expectation that this will immunize them to attacks in unsafe places.
