PUBG dev confirms arrest of 15 hack developers as anti-cheat efforts continue


Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
PUBG developer Bluehole has confirmed that 15 people suspected of developing hacking/cheating software have been arrested as part of an ongoing investigation with "multiple partners and judicial authorities" in China.

"As you all now know," Bluehole wrote in a recent post on Steam, "we've been doing everything possible to root out cheating from PUBG. The ultimate goal is to create an environment for players that's completely safe from hackers and cheaters."

To that end, it said, "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."

As a result of these investigations, "15 suspects were arrested for developing and selling hacking/cheating programs that affect PUBG" on April 25th of this year.

Bluehole also cited an official report from local authorities, which more specifically revealed that suspects were arrested for "developing hack programs, hosting marketplaces for hack programs, and brokering transactions". These suspects have been fined around $5.1 million USD (about £3.7 million), and others are still being investigated.

Notably, Bluehole added that "malicious code, including Trojan horse software, was included in some of these programs and was used to steal user information." The local authorities report expanded on that too, explaining that "hack developers used this virus to control users' PC, scan their data, and extract information illegally."

Cheat programs for a game is one thing... writing and selling a Trojan Horse is just fucking stupid. Have fun in prison, dipshits.

They're in China. All they will be enjoying is brutal hard labor and eventual death from malnutrition or fatigue.
