Left 4 Dead Patched to Prevent Hacks
Well, easy come, easy go, hackers. After the news of hacking in the Xbox 360 version of Left 4 Dead swept the internet, Valve apparently jumped right into finding a solution to the problem. Now they’ve announced the release of a server-side fix to stop the cheating from taking place. They also mentioned a similar title update in the next few days to prevent the same behavior in user-hosted servers and system link games.
So now you won’t have to worry about seeing a 12-story tall Francis in one of your games or having a literal pile of witches dropped on you. That is, until someone figures out a new way to cheat the system.
