The developer of Among mỏi Us, a social intuition murder mystery game that’s fast become one of the most popular multiplayer titles of the year, is currently battling against a particularly pernicious spam attaông xã.

The spam attachồng may have sầu hit as many as 1.5 million games, affecting close lớn 5 million players if the hackers’ claims are khổng lồ be believed. Loris is also a self-described Trump supporter, the report says.

Whatever is actually happening here, Among muốn Us players are undoubtedly being bombarded with some type of highly coordinated attachồng that’s compromising the game in serious ways. According to lớn InnerSloth developer Forest Willard, the emergency hệ thống update began rolling out some time in the middle of the night, affecting in-progress games and resulting in potential false positives. But it’s unclear if the issue has since been resolved or whether InnerSloth is planning future maintenance lớn address it. Players on Twitter continue lớn report Eris Loris-related spam in the game.


So yeah. I"m rolling out the server update. I"m using a faster method than I"ve done before, but it"ll impact players more. Trying khổng lồ be careful, but also, you might get booted. It"s for the greater good at this point. Consider it an "emergency maintenance for ??? hours"
