Valve still hasn't fixed the wallhack exploit that came with the last CS:GO patch

On August 17, Valve pushed out a patch for CS:GO. While the patch didn't bring any major changes to the game- it was mainly focused on quality of life and stability improvements, it introduced a problem.

The QoL improvements include some visual and design changes to make the UI look cleaner and more modern. Apart from that, there are also some improvements to matchmaking times and more. So, what is the issue with the latest update?

The biggest issue of the latest patch has gone unnoticed and unexplained

The new update inadvertently allows cheaters to bypass sv_pure in official game servers and see through smokes, use wallhacks, change skins and also alter the in-game audio.

This exploit was first spotted when it came out two days back. Since then, many players were confident it would get fixed as quickly as possible. Invariably, this hack breaks the game for those who just want to play the game for fun or even other players in general.

What makes the exploit even more deadly is the fact that it can be used to bypass the anti-cheat systems of third-party websites like FACEIT or ESEA. This means that it would be hard to spot a cheater even in the pro leagues.

As of now, it is unclear what the reason for this exploit is. At any rate, we can only hope for the developers to fix the problem so that players can go back to having fair matches once again.
