DICE addresses Battlefield 3 Punkbuster exploit
DICE has responded to a spate of incorrect Battlefield 3 bans by reversing as many as possible and implementing new protections. A exploit in the anti-cheating software Punkbuster was being used by hackers to get other players unfairly banned from multiplayer games.
“Together with the 3rd party service providers we have taken steps to remove the faulty bans, and improve the protection against future fake bans,” reads a statement from DICE.
Certain players, however, are still being affected by the issue and DICE states that its team is looking into these cases.
In related news, the developer is searching for an ‘Anti-Cheat Administrator’ to “secure the online experience … actively be a part of the community and keep up to date with the current cheat exposure”. If you fancy applying, follow the second source link below.
