|Bungie is getting the Halo 3 ban-hammer readyPublished by forahobby on Monday, October 22, 2007

Looks like bungie have had enough of people attacking their servers while they try to rank up playing halo 3.
If you're a cheater or an online trouble-maker in Halo 3, Bungie has it in for you. Last Friday they posted a message—more of a threat, really—saying that they know who you are, and they're not happy.
There are those of you doing things you shouldn’t be in Halo 3. Some of you have gotten a little too famous for your own good. This ain’t a church and there is no redemption or salvation once you have been judged. Apologies are now officially too late to save you.
The storm approaches.
The tongue-in-cheek message is clearly meant to send the online community into a frenzy of terrified squeals, but what's really going on? A member of the Ars Technica forum community who happens to work at Bungie chimed in with what the message means saying that they're "almost done dialing in the Banhammer, and a few people who helped us test Phase One are about to help us test Phase Two." What are they looking for?
Network attacks, by and large. Hard to prevent, easy to detect, but we've had to wait and make sure there were no game issues that could be confused for abusive behavior.
Banning a false positive is worse than missing several legitmate bridgers, DDoS'ers, and their ilk. So our process has been pretty methodical so far.
You can't run, you can't hide, and your accounts are forfeit. The reckoning is coming.
