Determines the type of game youre hacking. If its a hack that goes into a online games server then yes its illegal but other hacks are not illegal.
yes it was probably games like counter strike, call of duty. We are not using it, just sharing it, does sharing those stuff online count illegal?
Im pretty sure in most cases even if its illegal it wouldnt be something people get caught and arrested for. Most likely they would be banned from the server if anything. As for giving out info on the hacks i guess it really determines how the hack actually works but Im not a hacker and not raelly much a gamer nor a legal expert either to be honest so i wouldnt realy know.
Illegal or not, it is incredibally annoying. And anyway, have you ever played CoD world at war online? It was brilliant. Now its full of hackers. Its a disgrace.
Irish lad yeah i know what you mean. Call me unethical but its just a small online business idea. So i’m just wondering if aimbots and stuff was illegal. Theres tons of stuff like that is being used over the web anyways, so why not make some money from these b*stards. :)
Yes if you are playing someone you are supposed to have bought for free its illegal
Not so sure about all these accusations of hackers. I have been accused of hacking in the past which is such a laugh for me cause I can only just work a computer never mind hacking a programme! Sometimes it comes down to people being very good at a game, so good the novice is left assuming they must be cheating. I play command and conquer and if I play againgst someone new they can not believe what i can achieve is even possible so the accusations start….
dont forget some people this is their life, playing on games, they do nothing else, of course they are going to cream you!
Not saying there are no hackers ever, just not so many as the newbies suspect!!!!
its illegal thats why piratebay.org and similar sites are blocked in some countries
Jack I’m not talking about piracy. Just “cheating” in games. Piracy or warez is illegal I know.
oh, that’s okay.I guess youre talking about using “cheat codes” in games,right?….popular game review sites, just like the one cbs owns share such hacks for pc games.
but according to wikipedia, using aimbots is cheating,.. so not illegal,i guess
no i mean the patches or programs like auto aiming known as aimbots or seeing behind the walls to easily kill opponents called wallhacks, experience increaser (or whatever lol) etc. They are most common in FPS games like call of duty, counter strike, etc.
i think its legal. Just think about it. It’s just a game. If it includes live and death or it troubles the person then it is illegal and can be charged on court
you can actually be arrested if you have gotten into trouble for hacking and it includes video games as well as computers
i am on a game called virtual families 2 i want to hackinto my account to cheat. it is a game i have downloaded on my ipod. is that illegal? willi get arrested?
