Sony Fixes Malicious PS4 Message Bug

Sony has reportedly fixed a nasty PS4 bug that would send the console into a crash loop when a particular malicious message was received. Naturally, some players exploited this bug over the weekend by crashing the enemy team. On Twitter, Sony’s UK support team said “We’ve since fixed the issue, and it wasn’t bricking consoles, just sending them into a crash loop that can be quickly fixed in under 5 minutes. Delete the message on the PS mobile app, go into Safe Mode, use Option 5, console back to normal.”

If you were already affected by the messaging bug then there are steps you can take to get your console back up and running: 1. Turn off the PS4 system by pressing the power button on the front panel. The power indicator will blink for a few moments before turning off, 2. Once the PS4 system is off, press and hold the power button again. Release it after you hear the second beep: one beep will sound when you first press, and another seven seconds later. 3. Connect the DualShock 4 with the USB cable and press the PS button on the controller.
