Innersloth released an “emergency server update” this week focusing on the issue, which kicked people off the game in the process, but the problematic hack has continued regardless. Players are still seeing the messages above and other instructions from the hacker are visible in their games. Innersloth encouraged people To play private games or only play with people among whom you trust to avoid any problems.
Hello to everyone,

The tweet above shows what it looks like whenever you find yourself in a hacked game. Instead of leaving players at the normal start of a game, the screen goes black, and when you check the messages, you will see a spam one time. As with any such type of malicious hack, security issues can have potential consequences from being in these hacked lobbies, so if you load up and find yourself in one of these, So it is best to just leave it.
among us Developer Forrest Willard commented on the problem on Twitter about why players didn’t start the update as quickly as possible, instead of reporting the issue.
“other than this [noting] The reason I didn’t roll this update quickly is that I was scared of false positives: you can totally watch the game that you think you’re hacked when you’re not, ” Willard said. “I have tried my best to find such a bug, but this time my hand is forced.”
