When a a problem like the Meltdown vulnerability is discovered and companies (in this case Intel) scramble to fix it, it’s possible computer users will feel some fallout for a bit. After all, software companies will need to make changes to their products to accommodate the changes. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise if some of our favorite games — such as Fortnite — experience issues.

Since Epic Games uses cloud services to run the back-end for the game, they’re currently dealing with the fallout caused by updates designed to deal with the Meltdown issue. In fact, it’s caused enough of a problem for the team that they felt the need to explain it to players.

Hopefully things will level out soon.

    its kinda funny that something like this has been left around for such a long time… Makes you wonder how many hackers found this path and abused it for info for such a long time…

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
