As you know by now, at the beginning of 2022 a serious exploit was discovered in Dark Souls 3.

This means that one could literally take possession of a system, steal personal data and passwords contained there, or use your PC as a proxy for illegal activities or as a mining machine.

Several have sprung up on the net evidence of what happened, so much so that FromSoftware itself had to admit the vulnerability and shut down the servers of the whole saga. The official account wrote that “The PvP servers for Dark Souls 3, Dark Souls 2 and Dark Souls Remastered have been temporarily disabled to allow the team to investigate recent reports of a problem with online services.”

To these were then added the servers of Dark Souls Prepare to Die Edition, while the PvP servers of the Xbox version and the PlayStation version of the aforementioned games were not involved in this phase of investigation. On consoles it is therefore still possible to continue playing without any kind of problem. Apart from the framerate.
