Slam Posted April 22, 2020 Share Posted April 22, 2020 https://www.teamfortress.tv/55705/tf2-and-cs-gos-source-code-got-leaked/ What does this mean for CSGO? Likely not much, since CSGO has had so many updates, the leaked code probably isn't relevant anymore. Still the potential for things to come out of this though, but if true, Valve will patch/fix it ASAP. What does this mean for TF2? Unclear right now. Many speculate that it means people can use remote execution bugs to install malware onto your PC, while a few others (mostly idiots probably) fear you can get your account or inventories hacked. There is a very high possibility that people can and will use the source code for malicious attacks on your computer, and this can happen on all servers public and community. Many people are pointing the finger at VNN for this, but as it stands there isn't really much evidence for or against him, and he swears it wasn't his fault, so we'll have to see what happens. In addition, creators.tf currently redirects to their twitter page, they've shut down their servers "for the foreseeable future" due to this event. https://twitter.com/CreatorsTF Edit: Rumor has it that this is also affecting offline servers and other Source games. Edit 2: Please view this community post for all relevant information: https://steamcommunity.com/app/440/discussions/0/2270320616957466159/ At this time, it appears that only a few files shared by TF2 are in the source code, most of it is for CS:GO, meaning TF2 is likely fine to play now.
