Amazon deploys fix for New World exploit that let players crash the game using chat

Update: Amazon has deployed a fix that “should resolve this issue and prevent players from abusing and exploiting this feature. This should already be enabled in each region,” the forum post reads. Item links should be safe from here on out, but stay vigilant.

Original story: New World players may want to turn off global text chat for a while. An exploit in New World’s chat system allows some users to send messages containing disruptive images and, in some cases, malicious code that will crash the game.
