Tencent, the largest gaming company in the world, announced on PlayerUnknown’s Battleground (PUBG) official Weibo account that it has helped law enforcement in Pingyang County, Zhejiang Province to crackdown on a criminal organization involved in the development, distribution, promotion, and selling of PUBG cheating plug-ins.
A total of 34 suspects were arrested in the crackdown, the company said in the Weibo post (in Chinese). The operations were carefully devised, involving operations that were part of a larger network of illegal activities.
According to Tencent, it has been working with Pingyang police since its cybersecurity team noticed a number of accounts promoting PUBG cheating plug-ins on social media platforms back in May,
