Team Security is one of the many divisions of EVE Online developers. In a new blog post on the official site, the Team lets the community know what it has been up to most recently and how it is continuing its ongoing fight against "botting and other general nastiness that occurs in New Eden".

Over the course of February 2018, nearly 2,000 bans were issued including:

  • 896 bans related to account hijacking.
  • 511 bans related to macro use and botting.
  • 253 bans relating to ISK selling.

In addition, a number of account restrictions will be applied to those who participate in botting and clarification on Section 18 of the ToS has been revealed. This includes a prohibition against publishing private communications "from CCP, their agents or representatives or EVE Online volunteers without authorization".
