Some gamers who have been playing the popular fps (first person shooter) title Call of Duty: Ghosts have complained that the game was hacked and the leaderboard scores were tampered with, several times of late.
Users, who have been playing regularly, have recognised the hacks and have been asking Infinity Ward, the game's developer, why they are not taking any action or even monitoring the multiplayer online activity.
There is a list of incidents which indicate the existence of such hackers.
The first incident involves a player who finds two players working together. In one round he noticed that they were both on the same side and were playing well. While in another round, both players were found playing against each other, with the in-game perks enabled. The player who noticed this reported the case immediately.
In the second case, it has been noted by a player that the top 5,000 players on the Xbox 360 leaderboard keep getting scores past 20,000, which indicated some suspicious activity was going on. One player stated that they got a score of 3,310,300 without doing anything. He added that this incident happened because he managed to get into the mobbed lobby, where everyone is getting excessively high scores.
It has been also revealed that one of the gamers, with his own website, was selling the mobbed lobby he created. Those who tried to get in touch and talk to him got DDOS's (distributed denial-of-service) attack, reports Gameranx.
While these hacking attacks keep on increasing for Call of Duty: Ghosts, it's surprising why the developer is not responding to such attacks, which is spoiling the essence of the game.
Microsoft Xbox One Version Gets Dumped Successfully
Meanwhile, it has been noted that another hacker, named c4eva, has successfully dumped the Xbox One version of Call of Duty: Ghosts. The game is yet to hit the torrent websites for downloads but it would not take long. There is still no way to play the game on a retail console, reports Videogame Scene.
