After almost two weeks, Capcom has shared an update regarding the situation.

After providing the update, we have received many inquiries, and after investigating the issue we have discovered that part of the data in the update contains a program with some security risks.

We have also confirmed that the quick-fix patch we distributed on 9/23 to address the issue PC users were having with launching the game, also fixes the security risk noted above.

We are asking users who did not update their game with the 9/23 quick-fix update, to update their game using the steps below:
If you have Street Fighter V running, please close the application.
Please keep the Steam Client running. The update for Street Fighter V should begin automatically.
Once the update is completed, close the Steam Client and restart your PC.

The update won’t apply to your system until you restart. After you apply the update after following the aforementioned steps you can remove the security risk. However, Capcom is also working on a tool that will remove any unnecessary files that may be a security risk.

Street Fighter V is available on PlayStation 4 and PC.  You can report any and all issues to Capcom via their support page or Steam.
