      The bug

      Users are able to increase their gamma/brightness above the level that is limited in-game, without the use of any mods. This causes a lot of controversy as to whether or not it should be bannable on servers, as it's not classed as a mod/hack as neither is required, but it shouldn't be allowed since it makes the night vision potion obsolete.

      How to reproduce

      1. Go to %appdata%, then .minecraft folder.
      2. Open options.txt and change the gamma field to above its 1.0 limit eg: "gamma:50".
      3. This provides full brightness, which is usually limited in-game.
