    Hey Black Ops Community

    Treyarch is committed to providing all gamers with the best online experience possible, and that means maintaining the games integrity. We have a zero tolerance policy against exploitation, and this is to protect the many gamers who go online to compete and have legitimate fun. Below is a brief outline of our security and enforcement policy which will remain posted and will get updated here.

    The team at Treyarch has worked very hard to create a fun, competitive online environment, and we want to keep this environment clean so that the game can be played as it was intended. Users who abuse the game through modding, boosting, glitching or making offensive emblems degrade the online experience for others, and we will take action to prevent this from happening.

    Keep it clean. Play nice. Have fun.

    - Team Treyarch


    Users who have modified their hardware and have run hacked script or code. This includes modifying profile data to use illegal characters in a players name.

    Instant permaban. You will no longer be allowed to play the game online. Console users who modify their hardware or profile data will also be reported to the console manufacturers.

    Users who organize to exploit the game for the explicit purpose of ranking up very quickly or to appear in a high position on the leaderboards.

    Minor offense: Temp ban, complete stats reset, leaderboard entries removed once
    Major offense: Temp ban, complete stats reset, permanent ban from appearing on the leaderboards
    Extreme or repeat offenses: Permaban from playing the game online

    Users who go out of their way to exploit the game to grief other players. An example would be going outside of the maps clearly defined playable boundary.

    Minor offense: Temp ban from playing the game online
    Major offense: Extended temp ban from playing the game online
    Extreme or repeat offenses: Permaban from playing the game online

    Offensive emblem makers
    Users who create emblems that are sexually gratuitous or racially offensive.

    Minor offense: 2-week ban from using the emblem editor, emblem reset to default, emblem purchases wiped
    Major offense: Permanent ban from using the emblem editor

    This was written by JD_2020 explaining how they are now banning members who have modded their stats:

    Ensuring that Black Ops fans have the best possible online experience is of the utmost importance to Treyarch. In our continued effort to maintain the integrity and security of Call of Duty: Black Ops online, we are in the process of resetting stats and ranks on several Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 players who have not earned them legitimately.

    Boosting, glitching, and other forms of game exploitation hurt the overall experience for the majority of players that remain in good standing, and we want to reassure the community-at-large that we will remain vigilant in monitoring online gameplay per our posted Security & Enforcement Policy: (See above)

    Here's to clean, fun matches! See you online.

    Xbox 360 gamers

    Weve recently been alerted to the fact that people are modifying their profile data to create fake gamertags with illegal characters and offensive words. If you do this, you will get permanently banned from playing Black Ops online and reported to Microsoft. Consider this fair warning.

    Treyarch has a zero tolerance policy towards anyone detected as modifying their consoles or game data. Dont do it.


    [align=center]**UPDATE** 12/10/10[/align]

    Hey 360 gamers,

    There was a small security breach on the Xbox 360 this week that allowed some players to artificially inflate their stats. In both instances, the team at Treyarch had hotfix patches for the security holes within hours. Our security team is reviewing all cases, enforcing bans and stats resets, and cleaning up the leaderboards. Players who were not active participants in these exploits but who were negatively affected by them will not get banned we have the ability to distinguish the modders/boosters from the innocent bystanders.

    While the incident was isolated and fixed promptly, there are individuals who will re-post videos made during these brief windows in an effort to trick others into sending them money in exchange for rank boosting. These claims are false never send money or any other form of payment to anyone making such a claim. Not only is it a scam, but it is a violation of the console terms of service and the profiles will be banned from playing online.

    Treyarch is committed to providing the best online experience possible for our fan base, and will continue to monitor and maintain the online integrity of Black Ops.



    [align=center]**Update** 1/19/11[/align]

    Hey 360 gamers,

    We are listening to you and weve been busy working on updates based on feedback from the community. We have already deployed a number of updates, and there will be many more to come. Stay tuned right here for all the latest info.


    Additional security feature updates.

    New Features:
    Over 400 brand new Contracts
    Practice Dummies (aka, AI bots) in offline Local Split Screen
    A new camera editing mode in Theater called "Dolly Cam"
    "Load Multiplayer by Default" option for the PS3

    Issues Addressed:
    Resolved several issues with parties getting disbanded unexpectedly.
    Updated handling for UPnP-enabled routers to improve matchmaking conditions where users had strict or moderate NAT types. Also added in-game communications so that all players are aware of their NAT type in the Player Match party lobby.
    Addressed issue that prevented the Load MP by Default option from saving when other specific option combinations were set.
    Prevention of exploit that allowed players to keep custom classes and killstreaks after prestige.
    Addressed an issue where Flak Jacket Pro would not always protect against ground fires left by Napalm Strikes.
    Prevention of users losing their killstreak reward when switching classes at the start of a new round in round-based game modes.
    Addressed an issue where the incorrect perks would appear when spectating another player under certain circumstances.
    Added round start explosive delay to China Lake grenade launcher to give it the same round start limitations as other explosives.
    Contracts will now reset when the player Prestiges.
    Prevention of Valkyrie rocket exploding upon release under rare conditions.
    Prevention of Gunship and Chopper Gunner failing to give player full control under rare conditions.
    Prevention of an issue where a player will get teleported outside the map boundaries under very specific circumstances.
    Additional security measures to enhance detection and banning capabilities.

    Gameplay Tuning:
    Limit the ability to re-roll supply drops using Hardline Pro to Care Packages only, no other killstreak drops.
    Added a negative influencer to all spawn points to decrease the chances of spawning near an enemy. This will further improve spawning protection on top of previous updates.
    Additional sound mix tuning for Ninja Pro users increased ranges and volume of enemy footsteps, and removed player footstep sounds on concrete material types.
    Increased headshot multipliers for sniper rifles. Sniper rifles with suppressors equipped will now always be ensured one-shot kill headshots.
    Subtle increase in sniper rifle accuracy when scoping in.
    Added a render delay to the red diamond player indicators that appear when controlling the Gunship, Valkyrie Rocket and Chopper Gunner. When a player first spawns, this will not appear for a period of time.
    Additional minor reductions in knife lunge.

    Addition of Hardcore HQ & Hardcore CTF game modes to the playlists
    Prevention of the ability to earn XP in Private Matches

    Improvements to the spawn system to resolve an issue where negative spawn influencers from specific game events were not always being deleted after the danger had cleared in some matches, this was causing good spawns to be erroneously flagged by the game as bad spawns, which in turn forced actual bad spawns to get selected later in the match
    Experimental slight reduction in knife lunge range this is a trial change
    Prevention of Prestige glitching trying to prestige from Combat Training will reset your stats but not give you prestige

    11/17 (full title update)
    Improved matchmaking to find matches significantly faster
    Improved matchmaking to ensure that players are more effectively matched to games with the best networking conditions
    Improved host selection to ensure that the best host is always selected in the pre-game lobby
    Improved party system to ensure that parties dont get broken apart
    Disable ability to join Private Match, Combat Training and Theater lobbies when searching for Player Match games
    Server-side and game-side changes to decrease the amount of failed Film uploads
    Weekly and Monthly leaderboards will now track all kills, deaths and assists properly (All Time leaderboards were not affected by this)
    Prevention of Combat Training stats getting crossed with Player Match stats under rare conditions
    Prevention of temporary loss of functionality when a button was being held down at the point of a disconnect
    Additional fine-tuning of audio levels and ranges for footsteps and gunfire
    Additional fine-tuning of audio levels for bomb plants/defuses
    Additional online security enhancements

    Prevention of killstreak selection getting disabled in Combat Training under rare conditions
    Array: Added collision to prevent players from partially clipping into a tree
    Launch: Added collision to prevent players from strafe jumping onto an invisible ledge at the base of the rocket near B3
    Summit: Added collision to prevent players from jumping to a location outside of the map boundary when in Custom Games where player speed is maxed out
    Havana: Added collision to prevent players from jumping onto an invisible ledge above a doorway at C2
    Nuketown: Adjusted a spawn point that would spawn players on top of a mannequins head when that mannequin was randomly spawned in that location

    - Launch: User could access a small platform outside of the intended play space below the rocket gantry by jumping to a very specific location; now blocked from access
    - Launch: User could access a small area inside geometry at vents near Dom flag A by going prone and moving around in a very specific location; now blocked from access

    - Crash when viewing content (films, clips, etc) in the Community & Recent Games menu

    - Villa: User can clip into rock at west edge of grid zone B2 and see through to the other side
