PUBG Corporation recently provided an update in their ongoing efforts against hackers and cheaters in PlayerUnknown\’s Battlegrounds. Apparently, fifteen \”major suspects\” were charged with developing hack programs and brokering transactions.
As everyone now know, our company is doing everything actually possible to root out cheating from PUBG. The eventual goal is usually to create a place for players that\’s completely safe from hackers and cheaters.
We take cheating extremely seriously. Developing, selling, promoting, or using unauthorized hacking/cheating programs is not just unfair persons playing PUBG-in a multitude of locations, additionally it is prohibited.
We\’ve upgraded our security measures, improved our anti-cheat solutions, and recently even added a brand new anti-cheat solution on the top of all that. Meanwhile, we\’ve ended up continuously gathering information about hack developers (and sellers) and possess been working extensively with multiple partners and judicial authorities to take these individuals to justice.
Earlier this month, on April 25th, 15 suspects were charged with developing and selling hacking/cheating programs affecting PUBG. That it was confirmed that malicious code, including Trojan horse software, was included in a number of these programs and was used to steal user information.
Here\’s some translated information on the local authorities we dealt with on this case:
\”15 major suspects including \”OMG\”, \”FL\”, \”\”, \”\” and \”\” were charged with developing hack programs, hosting marketplaces for hack programs, and brokering transactions. Typically the suspects have already been fined approximately 30mil RNB ($5.1mil USD). Other suspects in connection with this situation continue to be investigated.
Some hack programs which might be being distributed on the internet contains a Huigezi Trojan horse*(Chinese backdoor) virus. It absolutely was proven that hack developers used herpes to regulate users\’ PC, scan their data, and extract information illegally.\”
The longstanding rumor that hacking/cheating programs extract information from users\’ PCs is proven really was. Using illegal programs not simply disrupts others, but sometimes end up with you handing over your own private information.
We\’ll still crack concerning hacking/cheating programs (and their creators) until our players are free to battle against each other in the totally fair environment.
This isn\’t unexpected at all in case you remember Brendan \’PlayerUnknown\’ Greene\’s statement in regards to the push to create PUBG an appropriate eSport. Cheating is perhaps among the many team\’s top concerns and need rest.
