This article is a summary page for different variations of a
glitches, etc. when talked about as a whole. Remote code execution is a form of arbitrary code execution between two or more games or a game and a device.
This technique has been used in the Pokémon games for Generation I, Generation II and Generation III. The exploit also resulted in what was called the 'first Pokémon Red and Blue virus', which would send a save file to another game (from a game that connects to another game via Link Cable) and trap the other player in a
In Generation I
Remote code execution can be performed with a corrupted party through the Link Cable. This method was documented on the website
vaguilar in 2015 and shared on the Glitch City Laboratories Forums by Aldrasio in 2016.
Another way to do it is via arbitrary code execution with the effect of CoolTrainer♀-type move. Using this technique, Crystal_ created a two-player Pong game.
In Generation II
Remote code execution can be performed with a corrupted party using the Link Cable, similar to Generation I. A proof of concept was demonstrated in a YouTube video by TheZZAZZGlitch in 2014. According to the video description, this appears to be the same issue as in Generation I.
In Generation III
Remote code execution on a Generation III core series game can be performed with a hacked Wii to transfer data via the
Nintendo GameCube – Game Boy Advance link cable. This exploit was found by Wack0. Because the Game Boy Advance hardware does not support being player 1 in this style of linking, this method of remote code execution is not wormable (it can't be used to create a "save file virus").
