Another homebrew vulnerability has been discovered on 3DS, this time related to the eShop title Citizens of Earth.

Christened "Humblehax" due to the game's inclusion in the recent Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle, this exploit allows you to run unsigned code on your 3DS console but requires an existing entry point, such as browserhax or Cubic Ninja.

Once installed, you won't be able to play Citizens of Earth at all, as the exploit is triggered as the game boots up.

The discovery of this hack follows the removal of VVVVVV from the 3DS eShop after a vulnerability was found in that game as well. Time will tell if Citizens of Earth is also removed.

Thanks to RupeeClock for the tip.
