“At least one intruder is taking advantage of a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive exploit to flood lobbies (even private ones) with text from chat bots that can’t be kicked,” writes Engadget. The attack “allegedly comes from one person,” according to Kotaku, which reports that “It’s a similar exploit to one found a few weeks ago, where typing messages into a lobby allowed users to rank up and down as they chose.” The chat bot’s text includes various complaints about Counter-Strike which it claims motivated the attack, including cheaters, hackers and “bugs that break the game,” and it urges a one-day boycott “to proof [sic] them that we care about the game and want them to fix it.”
