Blizzard, not short of things to do, has burped out a patch for Warcraft III - a game eight years old.

The update fixes "tower hack", "summon/cooldown hack", "new crash hack", "phoenix hack" and " sheep hack" exploits.

Full patch notes are on the Blizzard support site, as are sign-posts to download locations.

Long-tail support like this is common for Blizzard, whose old games like Warcraft III, StarCraft and Diablo II still attract a loyal following.
