Modern Warfare Falls Victim to PS3 Hacks
Infinity Ward unable to provide a complete fix.
A recent security exploit discovered by a group of PlayStation 3 hackers has become a major issue for one of gaming's most popular shooters.
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 have become "exposed to exploits and hacks" due to the PS3 security breach. What's worse is that developer Infinity Ward is currently unable to provide a complete fix.
"Games rely on the security of the encryption on the platforms they're played on, therefore; updates to the game through patches will not resolve this problem completely, unless the security exploit itself is resolved on the platform," Community Manager Robert Bowling explained. "However, that doesn't mean we're not going to look into every option available to us."
"Regretfully, Call of Duty games are receiving the bulk of the hacker's attention, due to its high player counts and popularity. However, the number of legitimate players severely outweighs the bad apples."
"At this time, we do not have the ability to restore or adjust individual stats."
In the meantime, Bowling suggests concerned players should play exclusively with friends until Sony is able to resolve the issue. He added that Infinity Ward's future titles will unlikely utilize the platform's security.
"In the future we plan to adjust our approach to not rely solely on platform security and reduce the ability for this to happen in our games, as has already been displayed by the work Treyarch has done on Call of Duty: Black Ops to prevent similar measures."
