The latest update of PlayerUknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) brought a new anti-cheat that caused a real sweep around the world and rattled the community of the game. In all, more than 30 thousand accounts were banned.
The biggest cause of the ban was hacking on the game’s map. This cheat allows players to see where the opponents are on the minimap. Despite being known for more than 1 year, PUBG Corp. has not taken action to combat it until the most recent update.
One of the biggest difficulties in detecting cheat is that it can be used through external devices, without having to change or install anything on the computer that is running the game. It can even be used directly from the player’s smartphone.
