  PunkBuster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

PunkBuster for Half-Life was a standalone application that ran in the background at the same time as the game.
PunkBuster has initiated Punkbuster Hardware Bans, that bans hardware components upon detection of cheats that disrupts or circumvents PunkBuster's normal operation.

 PunkBuster For Players
PunkBuster does not modify any files or settings on your computer even if it detects some type of violation, it reports what it finds and, in some cases, will remove offending players from the current game.
However, PunkBuster is not "spyware" nor is it a trojan - it is designed for groups of honest people to use together in an effort to keep out players who are unwilling to subject their system to an objective third-party software system scanning their computer during gameplay.
PunkBuster will retain older versions in case there is ever a need to connect to a Server that is still running old versions of the PunkBuster software.

Punkbuster was developed to check for violations such as wall hacks, aim-bots, modified map files, client variable violations.
Punkbuster is the system that was chosen by a large number of game developers because it does a decent job of keeping the cheating down and lets players enjoy the game as the game developer intended.
It is a sad day when the folks at Transgaming that are so involved in gaming on the PC don't recognize this and implement the features without a need for a poll, especially if their software limits you to the servers where kiddies can cheat, and they (Transgaming) know it.

A: Up until a few days ago, I was the only one as most of the PB staff is still supporting the old HL version of PunkBuster (we didn't stop supporting it, we just suspended development).
All of them have contributed significant resources (including personal funds, in some cases) strictly for love of the online gaming communities of which they are a part despite some pretty nasty and uncalled for emails and forum posts about each of us personally.

Punkbuster (PB) is anti-cheat software that can be used to automatically kick cheaters from your game server.
To use Punkbuster, you need a Punkbuster client to run on your PC and, if you requested it, we have a Punkbuster server for you to monitor your game server.

 Latest punkbuster information. - FileFront Gaming Forums
When players raise a violation that corresponds to hacking or interfering with PunkBuster's normal operation, we now (in addition to Global PB GUID bans) are Globally banning the new Hardware GUIDs across all games supported by PunkBuster (including games supported in the future).
So punks who are determined to cheat so badly on PB-enabled servers that they try to hack PunkBuster may now need a new computer in addition to a new cdkey in order to return to PunkBuster servers.
Additionally, PunkBuster servers will be updated to signify whether kicks for Global bans are for PB GUIDs or the new Hardware GUIDs.

 PunkBuster console commands... - Topic Powered by eve community
PunkBuster basically just looks for known cheats and game-hacks while you are playing a PunkBuster enabled game in an effort to authenticate your installation as "clean" for the purpose of consentual multiplayer o­nline gaming.
PunkBuster doesn't care if commands and settings are typed in lower case, upper case, or in some combination ENABLE, enable, and EnAbLe are all the same as far as PunkBuster is concerned.
If you change a PB Setting and want PunkBuster to "remember" the new value even after the server is exited, then you should issue a pb_sv_writecfg command after making the change.

 PunkBuster console commands... - Topic Powered by eve community
Please note that the behavior is the same as changing PB Settings from the server console in that they are not saved to the PB config files until/unless you issue a pb_sv_writecfg command after making the change.
If PB detects that a player has a name that includes the exact [filtered_text] from any BadName entry (case insensitive), then PunkBuster will send a warning message to the player that the playing name is not allowed o­n this server and that the player should change the name.
Also, PunkBuster will not allow more than 3 screenshots to be requested from each player within any 10 minute period, nor allow a screenshot to be requested within 30 seconds of the previous request.

With the announcement this week of the upcoming first person shooter Quake IV as the latest game to support Punkbuster, Gamecloud decided to go to the software's creator, Even Balance founder Tony Ray, to find out more about their current and future plans.
There are number of punks who were caught trying to hack PunkBuster with private hacks in games we have supported for some time that won't even be able to play Quake 4 on PunkBuster servers without getting new hardware to get around the global ban.
This saves waiting for PunkBuster to auto-update during gameplay and also helps players who are behind a restrictive firewall that blocks or interferes with our auto-update process.

Not only are the denying people access to other software, but they are telling people that in order to enjoy playing games on line (which millions do) you must have an unsecured computer that can easily be hijacked and used for other means.
