    Exclamation [ALERT]Innocent bf3 players getting banned

    A group of hackers have launched an attack on innocent Battlefield 3 players in order to voice their hate for the anti-cheat system PunkBuster.

    Users are finding themselves banned from servers that use the system and are repeatedly getting kicked with error messages. One of the hackers posted on the site Artificial Aiming: ”We are bringing back the unerring of punkbuster back for a 3rd season. We have selected ggc-stream as the target since they have the most streaming bf3 servers and makes it very easy to add fake bans. In 2011 we hit them with a mass ban wave and now were are banning real players from battlelog while ggc-stream is totally unaware. We have framed 150+ bf3 players alone.”

    Artificial Aiming have declared that are not affiliated with the hack, however they do support it.
    EA released a statement on the issue: ”We are aware that some Battlefield 3 players are experiencing connection issues with PunkBuster enabled servers. This problem is limited to a small subset of players on PC and will not impact players on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.”We are actively looking into the specifics of this issue and we are confident that we will have a permanent solution in place shortly. In the meantime, if a player’s connectivity has been affected, we recommend that in the interim they join servers that are not running PunkBuster. There is a filter setting for this in the multiplayer server browser.”

    Tony Ray, founder of Even Balance, the company responsible for PunkBuster told Kotaku: ”This was an attack against a 3rd party admin group that uses PunkBuster to share ban information. The group of hackers/cheaters associated with the attack likes to trump up anything they can to claim some kind of victory to avert attention from the fact that we are catching their paid subscribers and banning them while they are claiming their hacks are undetectable. The 3rd party admin group should be able to easily remove the corrupted streaming from their system if they haven’t already.”


    Found that. Kinda worries me.
    It's 4 days old fyi.
    Suggest all of you watch out.

    You can play but there is a chance you could be banned. They've banned from what I remember somewhere around eight hundred people.

    It isn't that old. It's like 4 days. They don't have it fixed that well.

    These people are actually idiots, this is a criminal offense and I'm sure whoever owns Punkbuster, EA, Dice ext, will file charges once they catch who these people are.

    PB is really crappy AC ...
    I still dont get why they didnt put it on steam ?
    90 % of people who have origin download it because its the only way to play the games -.-

    Everything in bf3 except a good multiplayer game without hackers sucks:
    connecting to server, crashes, whining people, nerds who play 24/7, spawns and so on



    But the game is just so awesome people still play it.

    well if you like game with hackers bf3 is not right game for u, Uninstall BF3 and play some combat arms you will see much more hacking in there, their issue will be fixed just takes time people who got banned without any reason going to be unbanned.. people need be patient, not raging like little kids....

    I play on like 3-4 servers now days, and limit how many servers I connect to. Truth is, if the server is compromised, you can get a userid, pass it to PB and say that they are hacking. Eventually you will get banned.

    Well at any point, it is a problem and it needs to be fixed. Agreed?

    A serious problem like this, I'm sure they are working around the clock to fix it.
