Hey lads. I can't seem to join any game, I get info screens like;
"Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'niewidomy90' (for 1 minute) ... Violation (MULTIHACK) #74005 "
"Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'niewidomy90' (for 1200 minutes) ... PBBans.com enforced a previous MBi Ban for niewidomy90. [Admin Decision] "
"Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'niewidomy90' (for 1 minute) ... Cheater banned by GGC-Stream.NET. Ban on GUID 57f53296761dde5ebe88db77c1528e87. Contact GGC-Stream.NET for details. [Admin Decision] "

I think, I shouldn't need to mention I have never used any kind of cheats ever for any game....
I already filled a ticket at Even Ballance but so far I got no response from them.
Anyone went trough same situation? Any advices how to handle it?

    Hi,

    Sounds like the same thing I got couple days ago and they are taking their sweet time at evenbalance.

    Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'Machette1963' (for 2 minutes) ... Violation (MULTIHACK) #74005

    Been using bf3 from around 2012, 3000 hrs. + all of a sudden I am multihack hacker, ffs.

    I have been Googling and found that their are hackers giving people false bans, via Evenbalance software exploit.

    I have been playing on some Russian servers lately and leaving my computer unattended sometimes (no one in my house plays the game).

    Hi, sorry my Spanish is bad, but what date did you get banned?
  • Machette1963

    To all whom have been falsely banned, here is the response from evenbalance/punkbuster, to my false "hackusation":

    12/23/2018 23:43:47 - "Alex J"
    Note #4: We do not find this violation to be triggered in error, and it will not be removed.

    The supplied GUID has been associated with hacking or interfering with the normal operation of our PunkBuster software and has therefore been compromised resulting in a global ban from PunkBuster enabled game servers. We have no way of knowing who was actually playing with this GUID at the time the violation was triggered. We also have no way to know if the violation was triggered on your specific computer. Our system does not collect personal information and furthermore we have no way to attach a cheat/hack violation to a specific person. This ban will not be lifted as then the person who did trigger the violation would again be able to join PunkBuster Servers using this GUID.

    To be clear: we are not saying that you cheated as we have no way to know who triggered the violation. If it is certain that no one playing on your computer ever had a cheat/hack violation triggered by PunkBuster, then your GUID (cdkey and/or game account password) has been stolen by or leaked to someone who has used it on a different computer to trigger the violation. We do not have the means to help you find out who is responsible for compromising your GUID.


    Basically, someone was able to compromise my account, so you are ultimately responsible "the victim".

    This is the second time now I have been compromised whilst using BF3 and I did have 2-step.

    But really they should be able to give me a new GUID and keep all my stats etc., for free, this it true BS.

    I NEVER HACKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Guys,

    I've had the same error for about a week and a half now: multihack global GUID #74005. I hadn't even touched the computer from the previous day's play and as soon as I loaded the server I got the message.

    I've submitted 4 tickets to EvenBalance now including hasteners but I've not heard sod all; PBbans moderator said they can't do anything as it's a global ban and EA also washed their hands off this and said only EvenBalance can unban me.

    The other point in Machete's post above about a possible link with playing on russian servers strikes a chord, because the last 2 games the day before were on a russian server TAHK HA C XL-GAMES.RU, 2 scores of 50-2 and then hack message the next day..

    Just a waiting game I guess, those **** at EB have got to respond at some point, surely.

    Same problem for me as of 1 hour ago. Never hacked in my life, guess BF3 is over for me. I'm not going to even bother any further after reading this and several others pages with the same issue

    I hear/feel your pain. That is the same way i was banned too. it is an exploit, as I am hearing the same scenario over and over now, just from two posts.

    I hear/feel your pain. I am committed to never buy any game with evenbalance/punkbuster on it, at this point.
