Users of the Reddit service warned of a new misfortune, the victims of which are owners of PlayStation 4 consoles. When they receive a personal message that contains a certain set of characters, the console crashes. More precisely, the device remains operational, but the “glitches” do not allow to continue the game normally.
To solve a problem, you have to reset the settings to the factory settings; deleting a “malicious” message via a mobile application does not always help, affected gamers write. Deleting a message in a mobile application before the console was turned on can be an effective way.
It is also recommended to disable the ability to receive personal messages from any users, limiting themselves to friends or completely disabling the feature until Sony releases the patch.
