Today, and as the team teams promised, the details of the famous exploit have been publicly revealed. It is noticed that other fromSoftware games, including Elden Ring, could be affected by this type of vulnerability.
Elden Ring in danger?

However, in Elden Ring it seems that vulnerabilities are stopped in the anti-trap system . According to the aforementioned LuKeyui, the MrsOstware teams have worked hard on the coding of vulnerabilities, including those that allow computer pirates to perform these famous feats. _ “To my surprise, they were all fixed at Elden Ring, which is incredible” _, he said.
