PlayStation 4 users are claiming that they are receiving messages that are preventing them from using their consoles.

In several threads on the r/PS4 Reddit board, users are reporting that they are receiving messages through the console’s messaging application that are hard locking their consoles. The stories all follow a similar pattern: users receive a message, their controllers and sound outputs fail, and resetting the console results in continual error loops.

 

While the exact cause is unclear, many users in the Reddit thread have likened the exploit to previous messaging exploits such as this one from 2015 in which a unique string of characters could crash an iPhone. In describing the PS4 message, one player wrote that it was merely a question mark in a box, suggesting that the malicious messages cannot even be displayed by the PS4.

 

Some users have claimed that doing a factory reset will delete the message and fix the problem, while others have claimed that the only way to fix the error is to delete the message using the Playstation mobile app or by logging into the account from a browser and deleting the message that way.

 

It does seem that the exploit is purely text-based, so changing your PlayStation messenger privacy settings should prevent it from happening. You can do that by going to Account Management in your console Settings, heading to the Privacy Settings submenu, and changing Messaging settings to “Friends Only” or “No One,” meaning that only your pre-selected friends or no one at all can message you.

Kotaku has reached out to Sony for comm

ent but they did not respond in time for publication. We will update this story in the event that they do.

So this question has been bothering me for a while so going to ask the question.

 

Is there any fix for the Recent Activities feed on PS4 not showing the text from the games you play (example GTA Online - You have claimed bounty worth XX dollars.)

 

I am curious to see what activities are shown for RDR II (since most of my friends are playing it already) but the text is missing so I don't know what the activity is?

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

 

Trophies and playing a game for the first time are fine, it's just in game activities don't seem to display right.

From what I know, showing or not it is depending on the game to have that. That's first and I guess you're aware of that.

 

Secondly, you must appear Online in your Online Status and must be logged in to PSN.

 

Third, in your privacy settings, you gotta set the Game Activity (or whatever it's called) to friends/everyone.

Aha!

 

Thanks, I think that might clear it up so I'll see if the feed show anything from now on, I've also changed language from English (Great Britain) to English (USA) as I read over on PSN forums that might

also affect the recent activities feed, typical PS4 and random unexpected issues with things that were working fine before software updates!
