Candy Crush Saga adds 2,000th level to celebrate 1,000,000,000 games played

Candy Crush Saga makes most of its money from a small, dedicated audience.

This is a pretty sweet milestone.

Developer King has released the 2,000th level for Candy Crush Saga, its hit, free-to-play puzzle game for mobile. Candy Crush Saga, which originally came out back in 2012, is one of the biggest hits ever in the $36 billion mobile business. It’s success elevated King to a position as one of the top mobile games companies, which resulted in its sale to Activision Blizzard for $5.9 billion. Few games are popular enough to justify having 2,000 levels to play through.

The 2000th level is available to anyone who has beaten the 1,999th stage, but it’s also playable to any that have at least hit level 10 as part of an in-game live event for the next seven days.

“We’re excited to launch the 2,000th level of Candy Crush Saga today”, said Sebastian Knutsson, chief creative officer at King, in a press release sent to GamesBeat. “This is an incredible milestone for us, as is reaching one trillion gameplays. Candy Crush Saga continues to be one of the most played games around the world and has enjoyed continued success in the download charts since launch. Over the years our team has worked hard to evolve and innovate within the game so that our players always have new and fun challenges to enjoy. We’ve launched this very special 2,000th level to celebrate and give something back to our fans, and we hope they have as much fun playing it as we did making it.”

King also sent GamesBeat an infographic, which you can view below, which shows some other stats for the game as it celebrates this milestone.

Windows 10 included password manager with huge security hole

There's a good reason why security analysts get nervous about bundled third-party software: it can introduce vulnerabilities that the companies can't control. And Microsoft, unfortunately, has learned that the hard way. Google researcher Tavis Ormandy discovered that a Windows 10 image came bundled with a third-party password manager, Keeper, which came with a glaring browser plugin flaw -- a malicious website could steal passwords. Ormandy's copy was an MSDN image meant for developers, but Reddit users noted that they received the vulnerable copy of Keeper after clean reinstalls of regular copies and even a brand new laptop.

A Microsoft spokesperson told Ars Technica that the Keeper team had patched the exploit (in response to Ormandy's private disclosure), so it shouldn't be an issue if your software is up to date. Also, you were only exposed if you enabled the plugin.

However, the very existence of the hole has still raised a concern: are Microsoft's security tests as thorough for third-party apps as its own software? The company has declined to comment, but that kind of screening may prove crucial if Microsoft is going to maintain the trust of Windows users. It doesn't matter how secure Microsoft's code is if a bundled app undermines everything.
