Roblox hack is back, banning innocent players from the platform

A major Roblox hack has returned in a new form, causing innocent players to get banned when they log in and play games designed to trigger an exploit on the platform.

Specific games trigger the exploit and they usually appear to be common experiences on the sandbox gaming platform. Players who enter these games, which tend to promise mysterious content, are prompted to enter letters that correspond to on-screen commands.

However, the sequence of these letterpresses causes the player to type words that violate the platform’s terms of use, resulting in immediate bans via Roblox’s automatic moderation tools.

These exploits are similar to the Crosswoods Roblox hack that the platform faced in July, which led to players being banned after logging into certain games. The games spoofed the Roblox chat and triggered text phrases spewing inappropriate words that resulted in an immediate ban via automatic moderation. The team behind the hack specifically targeted Twitch streamers to get them to play these games, resulting in those content creators being banned from the platform while streaming live.

These hackers, whether they are the same group or different, also seem to be targeting streamers. A content creator by name Fallen Synapse first flagged the exploit, posting a Twitch clip of them entering a game called The Silence [BETA] by EdGames11334. After some short overview text, the game prompts the player to play the game by pressing a specific letter, followed by more letter press prompts to get the player to agree to things like jump scares. When typed in sequence, these letters spell words that trigger Roblox’s automatic moderation.

YouTuber SharkBlox covered the exploit in a video uploaded on October 5. In the video, the content creator uses an alternate Roblox account to access another game that appears to be causing problems. Fortunately, the YouTuber manages to figure out how to trigger the exploit and is therefore able to avoid it.

While Roblox removed both games from the site, the company does not appear to have taken any additional concrete steps to protect innocent players from platform bans.

Although these games initially seem legitimate, players may find signs that the creators may not be real Roblox developers, as they may be using new Roblox accounts or accounts with limited Roblox history. In these cases, the exploiters likely created or obtained accounts just to build the games that trigger the exploits.

The new exploit doesn’t appear to be quite as severe as the Crosswoods exploit, as FallenSynapse only faced a one-day ban. However, if you are banned after visiting such a game and you feel that the ban is unfair, you can appeal it via a form on the Roblox website. Be sure to give a detailed description of what happened. As long as Roblox is aware of the exploit, innocent players who received bans should be rejected. However, it may take some time for the Roblox team to get back to you, and your ban may be over by the time you receive a response.

To protect your Roblox account until the Roblox development team has resolved the issue, stay away from games that have unknown content or are not made by trusted developers. The games on our list of the best Roblox games of 2022 have only trusted developers.
