Just before the release of the Elden Ring release, it was discovered that there was a vulnerability in the code for networks that is part of the “souls” that could enable attackers to take control of devices of the victims. As a result, the developers also removed the servers from Dark Souls. As a result, Dark Souls series on PC and haven’t allowed them to be used for the past two months. However, the Elden Ring seems to have filled in the most significant gaps.
VGC received a message from one of the hackers who wanted to make public the details of the vulnerability should Bandai Namco and FromSoftware take no action. The hacker stated:
[LukeYui] emailed FromSoftware an enormous document that details a variety of other vulnerabilities that exist in Dark Souls, which include security flaws (such as the ability to read and write beyond the limits) as well as a game bug that let other players to edit, ban or even delete their game save and more.
To my delight I was surprised to discover that I was surprised to discover that the Elden Ring has been able to fix all of these issues. That’s great!
LukeYui was the designer of Blue Sentinel, the creator of Blue Sentinel, the unofficial anti-cheat of The Dark Souls series. The Elden Ring comes with the first fundamental anti-cheat feature in the history of Souls. However, it’s in the game very sparsely and cannot defend against certain essential elements, according to an interviewee VGC.
Even if these easy workarounds are patched you’ll need to overhaul the system in order in order to fully utilize all capabilities in Easy Anti-Cheat.
If you believe that the hacker, this means that it’s true that the Elden Ring fixed the most risky items in the game however, it’s not adequately secured from less harmful hacks.
This is in line with the reality that in Elden Ring, there are hackers who destroy the lives of others by playing multiplayer. For example, victims have been dragged into an endless loop of death, and hackers typically cause havoc outright to show the weakness of the anti-cheat system in the game.
However, the VGC interlocutor is still calling Elden Ring “undeniably the most safe game to play In“. However, in the previous “souls,” things remain the same for the moment.
As per the hacker’s report, there are massive holes in the entirety of Dark Souls (including the first remaster as well as the re-release for the Scholar of the First Sin) even in < firm>Sekiro (although there is no way to play these code pieces in the game as there’s no multiplayer directly available). It’s likely that Demon’s Souls on PS3 also has these holes. However, multiplayer elements there were removed from the game in February of 2018.
Hacker published to the public the known as “proof of principle,” which explains the details of the ways you can make use of the security hole by using the example from Dark Souls III. It is expected the expectation that Bandai Namco and FromSoftware will take more active steps to address this issue after the information has become accessible to everyone.
When will we see fixes and the return to servers from Dark Souls servers It’s not known yet The company Bandai Namco has not made any further announcements on the subject.
