Infinity Ward Security Meeting on PS3 Hacking

Infinity Ward just finished a security meeting that entails the hacks displayed on the PS3 version of games for both hacked and non-hacked consoles. Here is what FourZeroTwo had to say:

I just left a security meeting with the coders here at Infinity Ward where we discussed a lot of solutions. I feel good about the meeting, but of course I can’t go into detail on the possible solutions we discussed as we don’t want to give out any information that could potentially hinder the security any further.

Once I have more information, I will post it here.

The key factor I want you to know is, that while any update takes time, we are looking to make the process as quick as possible and nothing is being left unattended.

Our main focus right now is on:

1) Preventing hackers from affecting legitimate players.
2) Addressing users who have already been affected.

He also stated that some of the problems need to be reported to Sony as well, so if you see someone hacking their way to victory, be sure to report them to Sony using this link.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Teaser

I am excited for this! Call of Duty 4 is my favourite shooter ever. One of the few games I have ever afforded time to complete on the hardest difficulty. So far from the trailer I can make out Russians in an Airport and an Oil rig. Does that make the final epilogue of 4 (Mile High Club) a prequel to this game?
