Capcom recently released an update for "Street Fighter 5" but it appears that fans weren't so pleased with the results. Just last week, the game received an update that introduced the latest playable character, Urien. The update was also supposed to improve security measures of the game. However, it brought more than that.

A post found on the Steam thread dedicated to the game announced that the new update brought an "anti-crack solution" which will put a stop to "hacking the executable." What resulted was a prompt that requires players to confirm playing "Street Fighter 5" each time they run the application. The issue was also explained over at Reddit. "SFV's new PC update is accessing kernel level in your PC. Puts "Capcom.sys" into System32. Game doesn't run on many configurations as a result. [Crosspost /r/StreetFighter]," a post from AirPhforce read.

Shortly after this issue caused fans to worry and complain about the malware, Capcom was able to release a fix by rolling back to the previous PC update, also including the new September content for "Street Fighter 5." The game company also apologized on Twitter for the inconvenience.

Meanwhile, the latest "Street Fighter 5" brings Urien, the sixth and the last of all downloadable playable characters included in a DLC. The update also introduced the Versus CPU feature, which should add more fun for singe-player mode. This new mode allows players to take on an AI and practice their fighting skills.

The new update also lets players have more options to earn more Fight Money. The "Street Fighter 5" update brought the "Daily Targets," which can give out up to 5,000 Fight Money, which can be used to purchase premium content without spending real world money. A player can earn 1,000 FM when fighting in a ranked match while 500 FM can be given to those who dedicate their time in Training Mode.
