Guilty Gear Strive streamers are being hammered by hackers | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

Some of Guilty Gear Strive’s most prominent players have found themselves unable to play the game thanks to a recent exploit that allows hackers to crash their matches remotely.

As reported by Vice (opens in new tab), the issue gained prominence over the holiday period, with the hackers using R-Codes—a player’s unique player ID—to target pro players and streamers. It’s allowed hackers to do things like change a player’s name while they’re mid-match online, crashing them out of the game. They can also push through chat messages that look like they’re coming from the affected players, which pro player Hotashi says is causing some pretty serious memory leaks. He says it slows the game down to “an unplayable crawl,” even in training mode.
