‘Undetectable’ Cheat Software Taken Down After Cheat Maker Bragged About It

KEY POINTS

  • User Vision Pro is a cheat software that used complicated technology to bypass conventional anti-cheat measures
  • Activision requested the cheat maker to cease the production and distribution of User Vision Pro
  • User Vision Pro gained notoriety online through ads and promotional videos

A potentially crippling game cheat software was recently taken down shortly after gaining a lot of attention on the internet. This software, which was touted to be completely undetectable by modern anti-cheat measures, will no longer be releasing in the future.

User Vision Pro, the cheat software in question, was an exploitative program that would help give malicious players an edge over their competition by providing them with machine-assisted aiming and auto-fire capabilities. However, it failed to launch publicly after Activision requested the cheat maker to cease the program’s production, PC Gamer reported.

The cheat’s creator, User101, said in a statement that they will no longer be producing nor giving anyone access to User Vision Pro at the behest of Activision. They mentioned that they never intended to do anything illegal and that the software was never published.

“This type of technology has other actual assistive benefits, for example, by pointing a webcam at yourself you could control movement without the use of limbs. Unfortunately, because of its potential negative impact I will not be developing it further,” the cheat creator wrote.

Previously, Ars Technica wrote about the cheat software, though the name of both cheat maker and software were masked for the sake of anonymity. According to the report, the cheat maker said that the software was able to provide undetectable and unstoppable aim-assist for PC, Xbox and Playstation games using a complicated system that involved machine learning and artificial intelligence.

The cheat worked by using two computers, Ars Technica explained. Cheaters would play a game normally on one computer while a capture card would send a live feed of the game to a separate machine where the cheat software was running. The software would then send signals back to the host machine, telling input pass-through devices like the controversial Cronus Zen to adjust the cheater’s mouse aim according to the location of human-shaped enemies.

Since the cheat would technically run on a separate computer and all of the external devices used in the process are involved in legitimate practices, the software is able to bypass traditional anti-cheat protection.

User Vision Pro had a number of videos showcasing its capabilities, including full-blown ads that promoted the software to its intended audience. However, these videos and promotional materials have since been taken down from official channels as part of the cheat maker’s compliance with Activision’s request.
