PB has been awol for a month or so again & the hacks are starting up it seems IMO. Seems like they catch up - release an update & then about month later they are back again. 2-3 weeks ago the hack sites and/or some hackers did DoS (denial of service) attacks and even took down PB (at least their evenbalance.com site was down....) and other anti cheat sites for a while.



I am however thankful that PB started catching the game hooks a month ago though. You can see when they start catching them again on PBBans and Punksbusted MBI lists - as the bans almost double in number all of a sudden.



And to IW's defense - it's a PB issue mostly and they need to step up if they aren't doing so already and hopefully the MW2 coding is more secure - but would guess it's about the same.



p.s. love PBBans (<!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.PBBans.com">http://www.PBBans.com</a><!-- m -->) for the anti cheat services they provide and they almost went under because of the attacks - so would encourage the community to go help them by donating to their new network/servers..

This year PunkBuster realeased maybe 3-4 updates for COD 4,this is not enough having in mind it works practically only one week .After a week after the PB update the hacking is back.

In fact the best game experience ,no matter the game (BF2 ,COD4,etc) ,is in the first 2 days after the PB update.



PB should be financed by the game publishers /developers because i see its used to minimize crackware also.

So no matter the donations this is not the way.No matter what servers they use when someone DDOS them they will be down.The bad guys ,opposed to what we see in some movies always win.

Better to DO the cheat/hacks sites than trying to keep up with them.



Practically a weekly Punk Buster update would be the best choice to have some good game experience in COD 4 PC Multyplayer.



Anyway the old engine is the issue here ,change completelly the game engine with a brand new one, with no quake 3 remainings, and 80 % of the haxors will be playing nice and tidy.



We are already in the 64 bit computing era ,maybe its the time for game developers to switch to it for enhanced security and proper PC experience even while gaming.

Are you for real ? Smiley Happy

So we all need to do our own servers so we can ban them Smiley Happy

Very few COD 4 servers have proper administration anyway and usually,administrators dont give a damn (some of them are haxing to).

In the best case you are the one called whiner ,if not kicked.

Evenbalance is paid by the game developers & would guesstimate mostly for piracy.



Therefore, we contract directly with game developers and/or publishers who wish to have our software and services associated with their online gaming products....If you are a game developer or publisher and would like information about integrating PunkBusterâ„¢ into your online games, please contact us via email at <!-- e --><a href="mailto:license@evenbalance.com">license@evenbalance.com</a><!-- e -->.

On the donations part - [url=http://www.punksbusted.com/forums/index.php?act=home:1ve449ml]Punksbusted[/url:1ve449ml], [url=http://www.pbbans.com/:1ve449ml]PBBans[/url:1ve449ml], [url=http://www.airdaleops.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=ba4m7nnu49e724l6p4v8k7s581&:1ve449ml]Airdale Ops Network[/url:1ve449ml], and ect. are community based developed utilities that run along with Punkbuster to help flag, catch, and ban hackers/cheaters and thus, they depend on the community for support.



For example, play on a PBBans streaming server and watch them get flagged/caught in the messages in the lower left of the screen. It just brings joy to your heart when ya see them get nailed - just wish I could see their faces when the "You are Globally Banned" screen came up... Smiley Happy
