"Hackers have banned some players of the popular Battlefield 3 game to send a message to developers at Electronic Arts (EA) that its anti-cheating software is flawed. A junior member of the Artificial Aiming game hacking website revealed that he and his anonymous hacking group are “framing” players to make the controversial PunkBuster software believe they were cheating in game. The group took responsibility for a previous attack in 2011 and said it has already banned more than 150 Battlefield 3 players to show how easy it is for PunkBuster to wrongly block a player."
