A new menu update for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems has been released. The official statement on the support website describes version 9.5.0-23 by saying that "Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience."

This update fixes an exploit involving the use of the system's built-in web browser and QR code scanner. Some applications players found for this exploit include illegitimately obtaining Pokémon in Pokémon X and Y and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, and modifying the cost of Jewels in Pokémon Shuffle.

While these exploits did not work on the New Nintendo 3DS due to their different internet browser to the original Nintendo 3DS and 2DS, the update is also available for them.
