    PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds fans have been frustrated by the game’s overwhelmingly large population of cheaters. In a blog post Friday afternoon, the development team at PUBG Corporation announced it’s taking extreme measures to promote fair play and secure the personal information of its users.

    On April 25, just days before the post’s publish date, PUBG Corp reports that 15 suspects were arrested for developing and selling programs used to cheat or hack in PUBG. The following was translated from local authorities on the case:

    "Fifteen major suspects including “OMG,” “FL,” “ 火狐 ,” “ 须弥 ” and “ 炎黄 ” were arrested for developing hack programs, hosting marketplaces for hack programs and brokering transactions. Currently the suspects have been fined approximately $5.1 million. Other suspects related to this case are still being investigated.

    “Some hack programs that are being distributed through the internet include a Huigezi Trojan horse virus. It was proven that hack developers used this virus to control users’ PC, scan their data and extract information illegally.”
