Glitch Inducing Message Reportedly Crashing PS4s, Users Urged To Change Settings

"Messages" via the Sony Entertainment Network website and clicking the edit button near Messages to change your default settings. PS4 owners have gathered on Reddit to document the issue, noting that the console can crash just from receiving the message, even if it's not opened.

If only it wasn't just bots on PSN that users need to worry about it seems that there is a new kind of messaging exploit that can be used by other players as a way to temporarily brick your console. Multiple users have discussed the issue on the r/PS4 Reddit forum, where they say they are receiving messages through with suspicious characters, that has locked them out of games, and eventually, off their PlayStation entirely.

Reddit users seemed to all have stories beginning similarly with "I was beating these guys in x online game" before they received the message. Both should prevent unsafe messages from reaching you. Some cases are so severe that a factory reset becomes necessary to stabilise the console once again.

Sony hasn't issued a warning as of press time, but just to be safe, SET YOUR MESSAGES TO PRIVATE on your PS4 for now.

- On the PS4, just navigate to Settings Account Management Privacy Settings Personal Info/Messaging, and set Messages to either "friends only" or "no one".

In Washington, officials have vowed to maintain a "maximum pressure" campaign until the North denuclearises. Pompeo was reportedly promised a meeting with Kim in July, but no such meeting took place.

From a web browser, visit the PSN Privacy setting page, then sign in with your PS4 account credentials. Someone who wants to brick your console simply sends you a message that your PS4 can't read or recognise, and it crashes the system. As a reminder, Sony has disabled the ability to send the offending characters, so it's unlikely anyone will be affected from here on out.
