Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 could allow you to hack your server sending Trojans and viruses

by: John -
So, IW.NET's suppose to be this nice and easy way to get multiplayer running on the PC right? While there are a few things wrong with the listen model on the PC side, here's another big problem that's might be cropping up if you play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 on the PC online.

It seems those that are kind of unscrupulous can hack their own server so when they are the host they can do things such as give out information on where you are hiding to other people as well as send you viruses and trojans. Yeah, fun times for PC folks if this is indeed able to happen. Now, these things can be fixed in time but they can also be hacked again when the fixes are in place.

If you don't know why dedicated servers are much better on the PC side of things, this is another example. I wish Infinity Ward would just back to the dedicated server route and just give you a server browser.

Thanks Blues News.
