Taking Hacking / Cheating Seriously - Over a Dozen Arrested in China

Taking Hacking / Cheating Seriously - Over a Dozen Arrested in China - MMORPG.com

The PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Steam page has been updated with a post to review recent anti-cheat measures and the results they have produced thus far. PUBG Corp has been working in concert with Chinese law enforcement agencies to enforce recent legislation that prohibits "developing and selling hacking/cheating programs". On April 25th, fifteen suspects were arrested for using "malicious code, including Trojan horse software".

The investigation determined that these fifteen were instrumental in "developing hack programs, hosting marketplaces for hack programs and brokering transactions". To date, fines levied have reached $5.1M USD.

We take cheating extremely seriously. Developing, selling, promoting, or using unauthorized hacking/cheating programs isn’t just unfair for others playing PUBG—in many places, it’s also against the law.

We’ve upgraded our security measures, improved our anti-cheat solutions, and recently even added a new anti-cheat solution on top of all that. In the meantime, we’ve also been continuously gathering information on hack developers (and sellers) and have been working extensively with multiple partners and judicial authorities to bring these people to justice.

Read the full update on the PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds site.
