Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Switch hackers causing pornographic images to appear in Super Mario Odyssey

Didn't see a thread on this so...

Although Nintendo has been taking extensive measures against hackers on Nintendo Switch lately, it seems like they haven’t gotten everything under control yet. One of things that hackers have managed to accomplish is the ability to use your own custom pictures as your Switch profile icon. This wouldn’t really be a huge problem on its over, however this image is visible to other players in Super Mario Odyssey’s Balloon World mode – and some hackers have reportedly been using pornographic images as their profile pictures. In a game that is intended for players of all ages, this is obviously an issue.

Hopefully, Nintendo is able to take swift countermeasures against this. Until then, if you have younger children, it’s probably best to not let them play the Balloon World mode for a while.

I also want to add that this is possible because a Nintendo Switch devkit was sold on eBay and leaked online so now people have access to the dev menu.

This is a pretty big deal and I'm wondering  how Nintendo will react.

I find it strange that people are using custom avatars on hacked consoles, it seems like a way to get you instantly banned, regardless of the nature of the image. I assume the people doing it simply don't care.



Cant stand this to be honest. Just ruining it for the younger audiences who enjoy these games aswell. If you wanna hack your console fine just leave other people alone with it.



Well, you didn't make any mistakes until your disclaimer about any possible mistakes...

This.

Talk about a easy way to ban a console. You know that if its a custom icon its a hacker, so you ban that console from going online.

There are some sick people out there. It's an easy thing to take-down and ban their console for at least.



Wow, you'd literally have to have nothing to do to stoop this low.



That's what you get for not having a pornhub app or at least a browser. People will find a way.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

agh, fcked up people of this kind must be put in jail



don't mind my username, that was more than 10 years ago, I'm a different person now, amazing how people change ^_^

*straps C4 to one of the perpetrators, kicks him into a dump truck, then detonates him* Hope that helps.
