Major Nelson’s latest blog post outlines steps Microsoft has taken to smack down the cheaters they’ve found on XBox Live. Most of these cheaters have been using assorted nefarious schemes for inflating their gamerscores. That stops today for many, as Microsoft’s response includes:
- Resetting the offender’s gamerscore to 0
- Blocking the offender from regaining the achievements they previously were caught with illegally
- Branding the cheater’s XBox.com account with a nice big scarlet (or maybe orange) letter.
