Hackers have discovered a new exploit in Counter Strike: Global Offensive that could allow a hacker to take control of your computer if you accept a Steam invitation to play the popular first-person shooter.

The Secret Club, a white hat hacking group, discovered the bug and discovered that the hackers can circumvent it by using Steam’s invite method. A hacker may obtain private information from everyone who accepts the connection if a victim clicks on it.

The vulnerability was discovered in Valve’s Source game engine, which is used in a number of Valve games, including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Although the bug has been fixed in some games that use the engine, the exploit is still active in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

Despite the bug being classified as “serious,” Florian told Motherboard that Valve admitted to being “slow to react” in bug threads.

For Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players, the discovery of this bug is worrying. The game is still very popular on Steam, despite the fact that it is almost ten years old.
