Yesterday we told you that a serious exploit was discovered in the saga Dark Souls on PC. It turns out that there was a vulnerability on their servers that allowed other players you meet in PvP to take control of your PC and do whatever they want: from sending you a hateful message, to stealing personal information that could ruin your life.

Luckily, it didn’t take long for Bandai Namco Entertainment to take action on the matter. A few hours after the reports of the existence of this exploit circulated among the community of Dark Souls, the distributor made the decision to disable the FromSoftware saga servers on PC.

In case you missed it: THE FIRE RING It is already the most desired game on Steam.

In a post on reddit, a Bandai Namco community manager confirmed that the team is already aware of the vulnerability. Shortly after, the official account of Dark Souls on Twitter confirmed that they are investigating the problem to put a solution.

“The PvP servers of Dark Souls III, Dark Souls II Y Dark Souls: Remastered have been temporarily disabled for the team to investigate recent reports of an issue with the online services. The servers of Dark Souls: PtDE they will join you soon. We apologize for this inconvenience,” Bandai Namco explained on Twitter.

A solution is expected to come soon

At the moment it is not clear how long the servers will be down. We hope it won’t be for a long time, since there are many fans who are enjoying Dark Souls to prepare for the release of ELDEN RING and PvP is an important part of the experience.

That said, considering that THE FIRE RING is just around the corner, we believe that the community believes that Bandai Namco should take as much time as it needs. After all, it’s possible that the exploit will also affect the new game, so it had better be fixed before its debut.

What do you think of this measure? Do you know someone who has been affected by the exploit? Tell us in the comments.
