cd-key stolen and banned


Recommended Posts

hi,

 

do i have a chance that they unban my pb-guid (not global ban) if my cd-key was stolen by a person who cheated with it?

 

i am from germany and someone from great britain played and cheated last year (Oct 2008) with my cd-key. i have no idea how he get my cd-key, i think with a keygen or something like that.

 

and now my guid is in the MBI with a multihack violation, they closed my appeal without reading the content of it. they didnt check the ip-adresses. nothing.

 

i dont really want to buy a game, because of an anticheat tool, because #2 that is not fair.

 

and to the people who dont have compassion, i dont really need your compassion,

BUT it can happen to YOU too!!!

 

this isnt what anti cheat tools are for. i dont want to know how many players are banned like this, but if we all dont say or feedback anything about it, tools wont work as intended.

 

cu sometime on the MBI

In short no. Its your responsibility to keep your PC secure from viruses that may have stolen your key. As long as the ban is valid your guid will not be unbanned.

We have a special forum section for anyone that appears on the MBI because it is our policy to give cheaters absolutely nothing, and that includes a member forum acount.

The fact that you have a member account and can post in the normal forum sections means that we are well aware that it was not you that raised the bannable violation.

What we have undisputable proof of, is that a player with a pbguid of e3f7e59ffb305ec420e6d55c44fefdd4 joined a PBBans streaming server and raised a multihack violation.

The pbguid e3f7e59ffb305ec420e6d55c44fefdd4 will remain on the MBI forever, if we were to lift the ban it would allow a cheater to carry on cheating, surely you can see that.

It is the players responsibility to keep his game cd key secure and before crying keygen, I would suggest you do a full malaware scan of your pc to ensure a keylogger of some type has not found its way on to your pc.

i dont cry about a keylogger or about some viruses on my pc, i know how to check my pc for viruses etc... i play online games since 2000 (for about 9 years), and this is the first time and i hope the last time.

 

the point that makes me mad is: to buy a new game. the cheater who played with my key can also use your key too, pb tracks everything: the time, the ip adress, the game, the server... but still doesnt work fine.

anyway the game producers make their profit.

The game is made so you can use it on any computer? would you rather have a system where you could not (1 game per computer). People would boycott the games..

As I always like to say. Never trust anything from anyone, when it comes to the internet. Take this as a learning experience...would you rather it be your CD Key..or you checking account and credit card information.

a keygen generates cd keys randomly.

if i buy a game today and install it , a hacker could have had the cd-key generated last month , played with it , cheat and get the GUID banned.

 

but when i buy the game and install it and try to play the game with the most powerful firewalls i CAN'T because the cd-key is already banned.

 

does PBBans or evenbalance or activition or any responsible organization have an answer for this ? will they give a new cd-key ? the answer is no. because they have no control over it. while it is meant that when we buy the game it should work in all aspects and when have the most protection for the PC.

 

isn't activisions responsibility to keep its products safe ? while you tell us its our responsibility to keep my PC protected? what can i do when my CD key is stolen before i have bought the game.

 

i really would like to hear your answers

The answer is this, those lovely key generators you see are using the same leaked keys.. you are not looking at "brand new keys". If you were then why would cheat websites be selling keys???

i would take that answer as a BIG offense to myself. with a little use of mind and having some programing knowledge we all know keygens works exactly the same way company is generating the keys.they don't have pre-pasted keys.keys are generated in realtime. please DO NOT consider the visitors low minded people and think a little bit before pumping words outo your mouth.there are lots of keygens out there that give you a legit key for the software except for the costomer support. same applies to COD. but since you do not have a way to recognize the legit owner from the spoofer the only answer you give is a big white lie.

 

you may close this topic as you do all the time with another unrelated answer at the end.we all know its not benefitical for you to speak honestly.

I am speaking honestly, how about you give us factual evidence that these "keygens" are supplying legit never used keys?

 

I do not believe the encryption is broken, I believe that keys are stolen numberous ways including viruses.

how many keys could be stolen? over 1000 or 10,000? please read my post fully again before answering. i said the keys are generated in real time. meaning they do not come from a pre-made source.they are made via a formula.

 

the would out there doesn't roll on your beliefs. if you want the keygen i can send it for you

I asked for factual evidence, if you wish to send the keygen fine...

i would take that answer as a BIG offense to myself. with a little use of mind and having some programing knowledge we all know keygens works exactly the same way company is generating the keys.they don't have pre-pasted keys.keys are generated in realtime.

so the key would have to spam the activsion auth server numerous times to find a working key, would they not? I highly doubt that activision would allow anything to query their master server that many times to return a true key...

 

send me the file if you want, I see no reason to keep this open and I have no idea why you decided to randomly start posting here. Ill post the results if you want also :)

You are incorrect. Call of Duty 4 keys cannot be generated thanks to Activision's authserver. Every "generated" key from a COD4 keygen is a stolen key, and yes they are stolen in their thousands. Activision left the key in plain text in the registry, making it easy to steal. Pretty much every hack out there will steal your key and add it to the "pool" that the cheat sites and keygens use.

 

Anyway, this thread is now closed and shall remain so - I also suggest that if you wish to keep your privilege of posting here, that you post in a manner that is not derogatory to us or other members. Suggesting that we are untruthful is a pretty good way to have your posting privileges revoked... this entire organisation is based upon honesty and integrity.

 

The next post I see from you that is essentially trolling, for example:

 

...think a little bit before pumping words outo your mouth...we all know its not benefitical for you to speak honestly.

 

and

 

the would out there doesn't roll on your beliefs

 

will result in a full forum ban. This is your first and only warning. We encourage discussion - but only when it is done in a considerate and polite manner.

Keygenerators do not produce legit cd keys.

There is probably some insane odds that a keygen might do so once in a blue moon but it would be a very rare occurence.

 

The main reson that a keygen works in cod4 for so many is because COD4 forces the pb_sv_guidrelax setting to 7 on each map_rotate or server restart,

The only way to 'fix' it, is with a PB task that constantly reassigns it to 0.

Its been an issue since cod4 was released and its about time the game dev's/evenbalance got off their proverbial asses and fixed it. ;)

Lets remind ourselves of the pb_guidrelax settings;

 

 0 = Kick for UNKN GUIDs, WRONGIP GUIDs and DUPLICATE GUIDs.
1 = Kick for WRONGIP GUIDs and DUPLICATE GUIDs
2 = Kick for UNKN guid and DUPLICATE GUIDs
3 = Kick for DUPLICATE GUIDs.
4 = Kick for UNKN guid and WRONGIP GUIDs
5 = Kick for WRONGIP GUIDs .
6 = Kick for UNKN guid
7 = DO NOT Kick for UNKN guid, WRONGIP GUIDs and DUPLICATE GUID

 

This means that any random keygen user can join a pb enabled server with no problem at all if the guidrelax setting is 7.

 

Server admins need to place a task into their pbsv.cfg to constantly reassign the guidrelax setting to 0;

pb_sv_task 60 240 pb_sv_guidrelax 0

 

They also need to couple that with the pb_sv_NoGuidGrace setting;

pb_sv_NoGuidGrace

[0-300](default=1) Holds the number of seconds PB will wait before kicking players who join without having a PB GUID.

Refusing to enter a CDKey into the game causes the "no guid" condition.

 

As Duality has posted, activision/infinity ward in their wisdom have the game cd key in plain text in your registry, there are a lot of instant lvl 55 hacks, cod4 tweaking programmes etc etc that contain keyloggers and are specifically designed to entice in the innocent and steal their cd key.

This is how cheat coders harvest legit cd keys to issue to their clientelle.

 

@ danymogh why would it be beneficial for us to not to speak honestly

We are not evenbalance and we share the same concerns as the cod4 admin community and indeed the cod4 community as a whole.
