TF 2 and CSGO source code has been leaked
Looks like there’s a drip somewhere in Valve’s spigot. Source code for both Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has apparently been made public. The files appear to be from years ago, though that may not prevent present troublemakers from doing their thing. Some fan servers are worried enough that they’ve gone offline until they can assure that these leaks won’t compromise the security of players. So far it’s unclear where the leak originated, though of course that hasn’t stopped anyone from guessing or pointing fingers.
With access to the source code, there’s a concern that wronguns could cause mayhem for players. Some player-run servers are already shutting down to protect against possible security vulnerabilities. Redsun, for starters, have notified their Discord members that they are temporarily shutting down their servers after hearing reports that someone discovered “a remote code execution exploit that could be used to run malicious code on your client.” Oof.
