Online Hacking Already Started on the PS3? | Modern Warfare 2 [Update: False]


I got a email from Holly through our contact form saying somebody hacked her account on Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. She said that another player hacked the game she was playing in and made her 10th prestige.

During the game the guy had some kind of hack and he couldn’t die and put everyone in a jumble and killed us all. Then my person couldn’t move anymore and it said I was a higher rank and all of my “unlockables” were being unlocked. And now I am in prestige mode and my completion is 100%, but I just want to go back to what I actually was accomplishing.
-
It unlocked all emblems, call signs, finished all challenges, unlocked all weapons and attachments, and put my completion of online play at 100%.

Here is a screenshot of her emblem screen right after she was hacked.

This really has me angered, I don’t want to play online games against cheaters/hackers! It’s one thing to hack and cheat in an online game, but to hack and unlock another persons account is even more uncalled for. It’s sad that the PS3 online hacking has already begun.

What really worries me is that they can hack other peoples accounts. Make sure you back up your game saves often! If you can’t it’s probably a locked game save, see the full list here.

If you see somebody hacking in a game. Report their PSN ID to Sony and to the makers of the game you are playing. Only we can prevent them from playing online with us.

[Update] Guess this isn’t due to the PS3 recently being hacked. More of old PS3 game that was hacked and was never patched. False alarm guys.

    I dont think that this is because of the recent PS3 hacks, call of duty has been hacked for a while now. not to say that it wont lead to more ps3 game hacks and online hacks in the future

    Never played MW2 so I didn’t know about those hacks. I got this comment on the story on another site:

    this isn’t so much to do with PS3 hacking but more so hacking a broken game. This is nothing new for MW2 and it’s just MW2 itself – something IW never patched. It’s the game, not the system due to recent breaks in hacking.

    damn that does suck

    yeah that comment makes sense. CoD has been broken for a while, and I’m not sure the recent hacks will actually effect online gaming. failoverflow said in their twitter not to update the firmware, so if you dont update then no online

    good to hear its the game then and that cheating hacks havent started… yet

    So, did she at least get the trophies associated with online play?

  9. #9 by Dean147 on January 11th, 2011 [ 359 Points ]

    There aren’t any online trophies. only the main campaign then Spec Ops. quite an easy platinum

    That sounds like a good thing to me….. :)

    Eh what ever, anyway any1 here that sony is somehow going to stop the jailbreak

    Def is an old hack, but you can’t do it to other players while in the game, you need to get onto their actual PSN account.

    My first impression was along the lines of “those douchebags”

    The second was “damn, modern warfare 2 sucks, glad i never picked it up”

    lol yeah and that somebody properly comes here everyday and puts comments up and etc… but i love to just give a nice sloopy kiss right on his cheek to all the hacking people of the world, that does this cause they need to be hugged and kissed cause they dont have anyhing else to do and after that I’ll hook them up with some girls, cause thats what they need all above and a grat big BJ from a girl that knows how to give it cause they most not get a good one doing all this hacking.

    The people at playstation can do nothing to reverse this. That info unlocks the greater potential of an already awesome machine. This is a hardware issue. They have 2 options. 1, release a new console and piss everyone off, or 2, make like XBOX, charge an internet usage fee and deny access to modded machines. My buddy Mike had his modded XBOX shut down by the network 2 days before Modern’s release. And that type of tactic will drive up console sales because Mike had a new XBOX before the game came out. And I know he was not alone in that.

    yeah maybe its a hardware problem, but its like a computer anything with a harddrive and internet hook up, is not all always hacker proof so their is always that chance. If you unhook your ps3 from internet you would never get hacked, or have that chance so I dont thank its a hardware issue.

    Hello,

    I want to talk about what happened to me last night.
    When i was playing online, they were 2 hackers within 2 hours.
    The first one was capable of running very fast and was knifing the whole team alone crossing the map back and forth with red squares detector (like predator missile’s) on his screen (seen from kill-cam). On the following map, He also had infinite ammo and was owning the whole team with unlimited grenades from grenade launcher.
    The second one was flying and killing everyone spawning with a sniper + aim-bot, shooting them from the sky. And everyone shooting at him made him earning your kill… (Like a reverse kill, you kill him but he doesn’t die, instead, you die and he earns your shots).

    Finally, the hacking night screwed up my progress on ranking up to level 70.
    I first started playing this game on November 2010. Yesterday, on January 13th, I have been sent on a server where only colt was allowed. The map was “Derail”. Walking speed has been incredibly increased. I didn’t play (I didn’t have the time) because as soon as I spawned, I got killed across the map by a guy shooting across houses and walls. The kill made the server bugging and I got disconnected. When I looked at my game menu, I got leveled up to level 70… Prestige unlocked, all weapons, defis, emblems, weapons’ experts ranks + progresses , accessories, killing bonuses and cammo were unlocked…
    Somehow it’s good because it saves my time, time to play a lot and reach that level and unlock everything (I don’t want to spend my life on this game), but It pisses me off because I didn’t end my progress by myself and it’s frustrating to have been wasted the pleasure to rank up with efforts.

    Thanks for reading

    The same thing has happened to me that Alex has posted. I went to play team death match express, and the game it put me in was most all 10th prestige, and level 70. My guy moved ten times as fast and the person that hacked the game couldn’t die. You could jump on top of buildings also. The hacker could could pretty much just fire his gun and everyone would die and the game would be over in as little as 30 seconds. His kill cams showed all kinds of menus and things that stated what was active in the hack.

    I turned it off for a few hours and then came back and all the games i went into had a hacker. This is disappointing and i most likely won’t play again until this is fixed. After I just got out of the most recent game I tried to play, my username turned red instead of the usual white letters/numbers

    My son (7 yrs) had the same issues. This must be stopped. There is no way to continue the game while all of the nonsense is going on. Is there any way to block the hackers from joining the game or our network? I am worried about them getting into my PS player and getting other things messed up. Only a matter of time until they get into Black Ops and start creating chaos there too. Ruins the whole game; serious gamers should be outraged. Any tips or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you!

    Hello,

    I’m hunting hackers on MW2 right now, just because when I play and see one or after dying a lot because of them, I take my cellphone and shot at the screen. A way of showing how bored I am. So I get their PSN name. After, I report their name to this link :

    http://np.us.playstation.com/complaint/pc/ComplaintForm.aspx

    For a year, I was an admin (2nd Leader) on a clan on Battlefield Vietnam. It was much easier to get rid of them with a remote manager, selecting the nickname, right-click, “Ban”… What a shame we can’t hire trusted people capable of doing this in order to keep our games clean.

    Regards

    Get rid of the PS3.

    Reply to santiago January 18th

    “its ok to see this on the 360″ Its not though is it, it ruins everyones experiene. MS has sorted this issue out straight away with an update for the 360. If only Sony would do the same, ever heard of the saying you dont get something for nothing. Free online gaming on the PS3, Sony dont give a donald duck about your gaming eperience. TBH id sooner pay a monthly subscription to MS and have a decent online experience then have Sonys mickey mouse equivalent.

    Hence why i got shot of the PS3.

    Hello,

    I bought MW2 about a week ago to play it online. After I hit Level 4, I saw weird colors and moves in the screen. After that I became Level 70 suddenly. I was in the room where everyone is either flying, or running like a light speed. I had like a 0.05 sec to stay alive.

    I reset my level to ONE but the same thing happened again when I was at Level 3. Is it something with my userid? If I change my ID to something else, would I be safe, at least for a while? Is there anything to stop those f***king people to ruin others’ games?

    Thanks,

  24. #24 by mark payne on January 31st, 2011
