Default 'Dark Souls 3' security hole lets attackers hijack your PC

You might not want to play a Dark Souls game online for a while not that you necessarily can. As Dexerto and The Verge report, attackers have discovered a security exploit in Dark Souls 3 (and potentially Elden Ring) for Windows that lets attackers remotely execute control and effectively hijack your PC. Streamers like The_Grim_Sleeper have learned about the potential damage first-hand in his case, the intruder launched Microsoft PowerShell and ran a text-to-speech script blasting him for his gameplay.
