According to a recent post, the patch that was pushed on the game's live servers two days ago was supposed to combat cheaters by implementing new detection methods. The patch supposedly wasn't tested prior to the roll out.

Initially, the studio behind the game stated it had no intention of roll back the patch because it considers combating cheaters to be a priority. However, a recent announcement now states the studio has decided to roll back the patch to remedy issues reported by many.

Steam users should see the automatic update appear over the course of the next 24 hours in the form of a 24 MB download.
