209w ago - A few days ago we saw a barrage of videos on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 glitches and PS3 hacks.
Today, Codb0t (linked above) reports that the first Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 AimBot for PS3 has arrived, although it may not be publically released until this Christmas.
For those unaware, an aimbot is a game bot used in multiplayer first-person shooter games to provide varying levels of target acquisition assistance to the player. As it gives the user an unfair advantage over unaided players, it is considered cheating and is often frowned upon by honest players.
That being said, to quote from their latest update:
"So you have all seen the MW2 Leaderboard hack on PS3 were people are changing there scores to what ever they like and their rank to 10th in 5 mins. Well we have gone one better. The first MW2 BOT for PS3 - Also know as Codb0t.
As you can see from the pictures below it puts red field box around the other team. With this you can easily see were the other team are. We have also worked out a code were you can also make the b0t automatically aim for you.
How did we do it? Well we took all the MW2 Files and played around with the code for a while. Once we located the correct files and we sent the files we made to change the previous ones.
At the moment we are still playing around with it and dont want to give to much away, but we will be adding more info very soon.
Are we going to release the Codb0t? Maybe, but we dont want to mess the game up and we all know that if it gets in the wrong hands it will be in every game you enter. If we feel like we need to release the Codb0t we will release it in the next few weeks as we are working on different things with it.
If you dont release it people will say its 'fake' ect? This is the Internet you going to get a lot of bad sports comming on here and other places saying its 'fake'. All we know is its real and we're using it. What other things are you working on? We are currently working to make the C0db0t have:
• Unlimited ammo
• See other team through walls
• Unlimited care packages
• UAV online all the time
This Codb0t is new, created 5th of December so we will have a lot more info and pictures up very soon about it. Maybe we will relase it for Christmas? We will keep you updated!"

I was genuinely gutted when i read the thread title! after reading all the posts though i'm thinkin it's gotta be fake *crosses fingers* As for the leaderboard hacks, I know a lot of people will be annoyed but I hope IW reset the servers when they've worked out a patch for the glitch.
Alot of honest people have put time and effort into levelling up for some 12yr old kid to glitch into top 100?
Same for the trophy system as well.
Bots, leaderboard hacks and trophy hacks are cheating in some form, however you wana justify it. the game wasn't designed to do it, it's not the "rules" of the game and if you have to use one of those methods just to get some form of virtual pride, then it just shows how much you must fail at this great game
Idk for a big game like this, the number of glitches found, in such a short period of time is nothing more than sad... I mean its sad that all the trophies can be hacked more or less... and you can cheat to become in the top 100 or so... So for this i could believe such a thing, but the way it looks is far too fake =\ but it was a nice laugh
Actually the RED-ORANGE thinghy is quite LEGIT, as JPG compression is not lossless, and it manages to get those hi rate for compression using a method more like nearest neighbour (actually blocks but let's not get too technical), so it's quite a usual problem that a thin red line more than often looks orange!
