Minecraft has received another security patch which brings the game up to version 1.8.5.

The new update, which is now available for download, patches up a few security issues that were previously reported by players, including an exploit with signs and command blocks.

Additionally, the patch also squashes some bugs to enhance the game’s overall stability and performance, works for better server validation for movement of packets and more.
