People are getting banned for no reason - AGAIN!

Hi FPSB! Okay, it seems like a lot of people are now banned for no particular reason. Some of my clan members are banned and I am very sure they do not hack. Is it happening over the world or just in Asia (that's where I'm in)? Please guys, no trolling, flaming etc. Just confirming if the false bans are happening again. Cheers.

    well first of all, this thread is 40 minutes old and you wanted to bump it after 10 minutes? Think lots of people are offline so replies will come soon.

    so to come back to topic : I am from Germany and Noone in my list is banned, neither me nor my friends.

    A lot of my friends got banned because they used server mods. Maybe that's th reason that some of your clan members got banned, 'cause those server mods are not really hacks.

    VAC never bans for no reason. It doesn't sit down and say, "Let's ban those damn asians!" It's a program that watches for players that have altered their game files to get an advantage over the other players.

    VAC never bans for no reason.


    True, it doesn't ban for no reason, there is always a reason for ban.
    However, there is sometimes false positives;

    VAC1: On its initial release, VAC would issue bans for faulty memory. Valve quickly updated VAC to only kick for faulty memor and reversed all bans for faulty memory.
    VAC1: The effect of running the VAC-protected game through the Cedega software compatibility layer for Linux.
    VAC1: An apparent server-side glitch on April 1, 2004.
    VAC2: Over two weeks in July 2010, approximately 12,000 owners of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 were banned when Steam updated a DLL file on-disk after it had been loaded into memory by the game. Those affected received a free copy of Left 4 Dead 2 and/or a gift copy to send to a friend.

    Source

    As for ontopic; There seems to not be same problem again. Your friends most likely did use cheats or played on modded host. Who knows.
    They can't revert them anyway.

    Too bad that I didn't get banned on July,or I can get a free copy of L4D2.
    Wrong VAC bans are very rare,except there are some cheating/hacking devices in your/his hard drive like Soldier Front H4X[Even this isn't a Steam game,VAC will still scans your memory for any dubious DLL and programs.],CS1.0 Wallhax pack--DLL ver!,FUCK's Ins Aimbot-no one will know you're haxing!,Steam keylogger by fuckme--access free Steam Games!...etc etc etc
    (The listed devices exists,but the names of them are wrong,they have their own specific names,they may get your steam account hijacked at any time.)
    Life is good.

    @Yello, the way VAC works is a bit different. It searches for changes in your game core, yes, but not any change. There are mods that allow you to change things in the game, like playing music through voice chat, yet that doesn't VAC you.

    The way they do it with VAC is that it searches for things that match their library of malicious cheats. If the files match, they flag you for a ban on a later date (it's late so you can't test cheats easily).

    Why do some people get away? Some people write their own original code for cheats and use other methods of cheating in game that VAC is not aware of in their library. Therefore, it will not notice them unless Valve gets their hands on it too.

    There were problems in the past with VAC for reasons like memory leaks and files in game mods that triggered VAC. VAC can also ban you manually, I found out that steam can disable your account for 24 hours while an admin bans you. I found that out the hard way when I pissed off a Valve employee in TF2.

    Seriously you didn't understand what he said? He said that VAC bans for those hacks that aren't even for a game which is on steam.

    You don't get banned if you join a modded server. I accidantly joined a modded server and this server was able to hack you account (now i have everything unlocked)and i did not get banned at all. You just get banned if some unknown DLL-files are in the mw2 directory. No matter these files are hacks or something else, they must not be there and so you get banned.

    OK "lite grammar" and more "understandable" version of my post:(Will be much longer.)

    Wrong VAC bans are very rare,except there are some cheating programs in your hard drive,even "secret" memory process that you didn't know and unlisted in Task Manager.
    (If you don't know what Task Manager is,just press Control-Alt-Delete on your keyboard.)

    The cheating programs and dubious DLLs will be like these:

    1.Soldier Front wallhack tool,[DLL] version makes your NP won't know!
    Explicate:

    The NP stands for GameGuard or aka nProtect,it's for defending cheating programs for online games,but it's a silly protecting tool.

    The DLL version will contain some ripped DirectX tools or game development kit debris which can force the games' walls,players or waters to be in framework,brightly colored or translucent,even disappeared.

    The VAC will pay highly attention to this,because it contains ripped DirectX tools(DirectX is almost 99% used for games nowadays.) and so on.
    This is the main reason that VAC will still catch you for DLLs like this.

    Official NP page to prove that NP exists:
    http://global.nprotect.com/index.php

    2.CS Wallhax pack,[exe] version!
    Explicate:

    The most obvious one ever,because it's in exe form,just the same as the dll does.

    3.[Steam keylogger] by fuckme--access free steam games!
    This is very dangerous for your Steam account,and it might still be processing even you closed the window of it,this is the secret memory access I had said in the beginning of the post.

    Expansion of the "Steam keylogger" knowledge:

    Extremely dangerous for your steam account because it will still processing in your memory.
    (Which records your keyboard keys for account details,other cheating programs also do this.)

    And will SCAM you with some blank to tell you to fill some of your Steam account informations(Some even asks for account passwords.),account hijackers love to use this way to cheat people,since it's fast and people love free stuffs.

    The most dangerous part of it is that they usually tell you to at least have one Steam game,or the account game "status" will be 0,not 1,then it can't be logged to give you some free "games".
    That means he can at least cheat one steam game to belong to him and Steam customer service guys won't know what you're talking and ignore you for being greed to free stuffs.
    Life is good.

    Steam support doesn't ignore you for being "greed". Support will always help you to recover your Steam account.
