Warzone cheat provider mined bitcoin with users' PCs

Providers of paid video game cheat engines have a long and well documented history of exploiting their customers in various ways.

It seems that a provider of Call of Duty: Warzone cheats has stolen cryptocurrency from users.

It was also mining their own with users' hardware - a tactic used often in the paid cheat engine market.

The allegations were raised against provider Cobalt Solutions, and first raised by a user going by Xav in the provider's own Discord server.

Apparently, Cobalt has stolen $900 in cryptocurrencies within a day, and Xav claims they stole more in the past.

Call of Duty: Warzone in particular has felt the sting of rampant cheating.

Hopefully with Warzone 2 on the horizon, the developers will make the game is harder to hack.
