Counter Strike: Global Offensive Chat Bot Invasion Possibly Hints Security Issues
Counter Strike: Global Offensive chat bot invasion is becoming a commonly known issue among the community. Chat boxes are being flooded with texts from bots who can not be kicked out.
The issue is not only affecting public lobbies but private ones as well. The attacker/harasser claims that he is flooding the chat in order to bring attention toward the problem, a problem which Valve is ignoring. After thousands of annoying texts from chat bots, Valve finally took notice but it looks like there is no easy fix for this.
According to Valve, they have deployed a temporary fix but they will spend the next week working on a more permanent solution.
Over the past year or so, Counter Strike has faced a number of issues. YouTubers were caught exploiting the trade system, betting, and misleading their viewers. Meanwhile, cheaters are another problem which Valve is facing for quite some time.
Just recently, the company banned over 11,000 GO players in one day.
Players who were banned were either cheaters, hackers, or used offensive language repeatedly. Valve VAC system is aggressively banning players which is a good thing for fair play and will improve the experience for the rest of us. However, we hope VAC is banning players a little too aggressively which may result in unfair bans.
According to Valve:
The VAC system reliably detects cheats using their cheat signatures. Any third-party modifications to a game designed to give one player an advantage over another is classified as a cheat or hack and will trigger a VAC ban. This includes modifications to a game’s core executable files and dynamic link libraries.
We will let you know of any new developments on Counter Strike: Global Offensive chat bot invasion.
