renew: Amazon has deployed a fix that “should solve this problem and prevent players from abusing and exploiting this feature. This should have been enabled in every region,” Forum posts read. From now on, project links should be safe, but be vigilant.
ability: New world players may want to temporarily close the global text chat. A vulnerability in the New World chat system allows some users to send messages containing destructive images and, in some cases, malicious code that can cause the game to crash.
I noticed for the first time sometime yesterday that the earliest use of chat vulnerabilities seemed harmless-a magnified view of the new world Sausage art Here or Raw chicken There. It didn’t take long for players to discover more malicious uses of the vulnerability.As you can see Josh Strife Hayes’ video is above, Obviously you can inject code into the project link message. When the mouse hovers over the message, the game will crash in a few seconds.
Amazon Games is aware of this problem and “is considering preventing this from happening”, but there is no estimated time to fix it. To avoid malicious links or annoying chat pictures, we recommend that you press Enter to close the game chat and close the channel, or mute it completely by clicking the gear icon above the input field.
Players also seem to figure out how to post images other than the artistic images already in the game, including images that extend beyond the boundaries of the text chat screen. In particular, one player said that they were “flashed” by a server-wide message that covered the screen with a bright yellow frame.
The vulnerability is still new and is under active investigation. Hayes’ video claims that the method of injecting code into project links can also be used to replicate gold, but it does not show that this happens. Unfortunately, the exploit does not seem to be complicated, so players should expect spam and troublesome links to deteriorate in the next few days. For now, it’s best to limit your chat to DM.
The MMO actually has a history of chat-related issues.Responding to the New World Sausage News, Redditor Booner999 shared the memories when users posted interesting and malicious images in it Wow chat User chinaexpl0it described a Similar exploit from Tera Online. Amazon’s problem is definitely not the only one here, so I hope to find a solution soon.
