As for the hacker, it appears their primary motive in all of this was to troll people. “I was curious to see what would happen, and personally I found it funny,” they told Kotaku. “The anger and hatred is the part that makes it funny. If you care about a game and are willing to go and spam dislike some random dude on the internet because you cant [sic] play it for three minutes, it’s stupid.”
As Kotaku points out, Among Us has had a hacking problem for a while now, but this most recent hack is on a different scale. With the help of a dozen or so volunteers, the hacker claims they’ve able to hit as many as 1.5 million games, in turn affecting approximately 5 million players in total. At the very least, the Among Us subreddit is filled with threads dedicated to the current situation. One, titled “Ok, who is Eris Loris?,” has more than 700 comments. As you might imagine, most don’t have positive things to say about Eris Loris, but some have also tried to approach the situation with a sense of humor.
