New Chat Defense Function?

So I've noticed that there's a new "Defense Function" that's been added to the chat.

"A chat defense function has been added to help prevent the chat window from becoming full of ad chats from third-party websites."

However it's very unclear in what exactly it's doing, and how it's doing it. I've been told from someone in the Discord that they've tested it by going to Henesys, but the bot spam remains unchanged. Does anyone have any more information on this? At first I thought it'd work like a censor, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I suppose there's the possibility that there's a bug with the chat defense, but until we know more about the filter it's hard to determine if that's the case or not. So yeah, more info would be really helpful.

    It's not something you need to activate yourself, so more information would be useless. It's like the "backend changes to alleviate lag": there's nothing we as users can do to make them work if they don't.
    I agree that this chat defense doesn't seem very effective. Either it's bugged or the spammers already figured out how to circumvent it.
    Nexon is aware.

    Well I originally asked for more info in case this was more suited for a bug report, but that's a moot point if Nexon's already aware.
