In recent months PUBG Corp. has been at pains to show the community that they're taking cheating issues in PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds very seriously - something that's "vital" for the esports scene too - and now we have a new video giving an insight into what the team is working on in this area.
Dohyung Lee heads up the PUBG Anti-Cheat Unit, and he discusses what's going on in the video below. This includes identifying and analysing hack tools being used, reviewing player reports, and developing a response logic for these tools. Sanctions are then delivered, and then the team prepares for future attacks.
There are various measures being taken to help with this, including machine learning, hardware bans that revoke access to cheater's hardware, and using data from international partners to assist with their efforts. PUBG Corp. is also providing information to other agencies to help take down illegal hack manufacturers.
In the video we also hear about methods the team are using to stop hackers getting around their systems; more detail on machine-learning; and their response to negative behaviour that doesn't necessarily come under the hacking umbrella.
Are you pleased with the health of PUBG?
