Robert Bowling, Infinity Ward’s creative strategist has implied via the medium of twitter that Modern Warfare 3 is currently being exploited. This mostly comes when a modded console is playing an edited form of code where it is then taken online.
Do not accept game invites or join Private Matches from any player you don’t know & trust in #MW3. There are dirtbags up to dirtbag things.

A Double XP event is currently in progress until Monday, and it is unknown if the servers went down for a few hours last night due to stress on the servers – or now, if they were taken down to resolve hacking issues?
Modern Warfare 2 was ultimately destroyed by hackers and Infinity Ward will not want the same bitter reputation hanging over Modern Warfare 3 – console bans are undoubtedly imminent!
