Updates on the way, "nothing being left unattended"

Infinity Ward creative strategist Robert Bowling has told Modern Warfare 2 players that the company hasn't given up the fight against PS3 hackers intent on ruining the game for legitimate players.

The PS3 version of Modern Warfare 2 has recently been overrun by exploits and hacks, and Infinity Ward said earlier this month that it can't rectify the problems until Sony addresses PS3's recent security breach.

But that doesn't mean the Call of Duty creator is standing still on the matter, Bowling said in an update on the studio's forums.

"I just left a security meeting with the coders here at Infinity Ward where we discussed a lot of solutions," he wrote. "I feel good about the meeting, but of course I can't go into detail on the possible solutions we discussed as we don't want to give out any information that could potentially hinder the security any further.

"The key factor I want you to know is, that while any update takes time, we are looking to make the process as quick as possible and nothing is being left unattended."

Bowling added that Infinity Ward's "main focus right now" is on "preventing hackers from affecting legitimate players" and "addressing users who have already been affected".

Users who encounter "inappropriate players" were also advised to report them to Sony via the link below.
