Discord-Recon is a popular Discord bot used to automate tasks like recon, scanning and information gathering on Discord servers. A vulnerability was recently discovered that allowed remote code execution on servers running older versions of Discord-Recon.

The vulnerability could be exploited by an attacker to execute shell commands on the server without requiring admin privileges. This posed a serious risk as it gave attackers full control over the server.

Bots like Discord-Recon run in the background to perform automated tasks. The remote code execution bug meant any attacker could abuse the bot’s permissions to take actions like deleting channels, banning users, downloading files and more without authorization.

Thankfully, the developers were notified and quickly released an update to version 0.0.8 that patched the vulnerability. It is important that all Discord-Recon users update their bots to the latest version as soon as possible in order to protect their servers from any potential attacks.

Bots of any kind should always be kept up-to-date to apply the latest security fixes. Server owners are also advised to review bot permissions regularly and restrict access wherever possible. Taking some basic security precautions like updating software helps keep your Discord conversations safe and private.
