The legend that crime never pays is not always true, but in this case it is: 15 people were arrested in China – more could follow – who developed and sold cheat software for PUBG. This was done by the PUBG Corp. Announced who collected data about these hackers and worked with the authorities.

But it was also about more than the dubious pleasure of cheating, which the hack buyers thus brought into their homes and on their computers: “It was confirmed that malware, including Trojans, was also in some of these programs for user information to steal. “, so from the police report, from the PUBG Corp. quoted. The suspects have hopefully saved a lot of money, because the claim for damages was initially set at 30 million renminbi – roughly 4.5 million euros.

“We are still on the lookout for other suspects. Some of the hack programs sold included the Heybox Trojan.” According to the police, it has been proven that Heybox allows the developers of the hack to control the infected PC and read and extract user data. So if you should cheat like this, the banishment from the PUBG servers is probably the most harmless thing that can happen to you.
