Hackers find a loophole that opens up Mario Kart 8 for possible modding
Hackers have posted a video on YouTube over the weekend showing a loophole in the Wii U's internet browser that allows Mario Kart 8 to be modified.
It shows pretty simple stuff for the moment like switching around the music for tracks, changing track names and more. It is worth noting that the cheat only works on an earlier version of the Wii U's firmware and the exploit doesn't work after the latest system update has been applied.
Some concerns were raised over the possibility of using the loophole to cheat. The hackers responded saying, “Very very basic stuff, more of a proof of concept rather than anything else. None of this is in any state to be released at present, and it’s unlikely that we ever will in the interest of preventing cheaters.”
They added, “We’re not going to be encouraging cheating with this and won’t let our work be used for it. Our goal is to make game mods; custom tracks, etc. Relax and enjoy what we come up with.”
