During the period from October 30 to November 6, 2013 punkbuster falsely banned users of Battlefield 4 with the error “(Gamehack #89265)” Since November 8, 2013, the problem of Evenbalance Inc. Resolved and all punkbuster bans that result from this error have been corrected and officially classified as false-positive. As with previous PunkBuster GUID blockages, hardware guidance locks are permanent.  Even Libra has not revealed the hardware that PunkBuster is looking for when a ban is enacted, but an accurate review of the software has shown that THE GUID can be based on the serial numbers of scanned hard drives. As with many prohibitions based on information from the user`s system, material GUID bans can be falsified. PunkBuster does not allow Windows users to connect to games without admin accounts. When you log into a game, the user is immediately hit because of the inadequacy of the operating system rights. Starting with the PB v1.700 client, a Windows service with full administrator rights is used in addition to the PunkBuster ingame client, which allows for updates without increasing users` rights. However, some games may still require admin rights before PunkBuster works properly.  PunkBuster generally looks for well-known cheat signatures instead of relying on a heurist approach.  On March 23, 2008, hackers published and implemented a proof of concept exploit of PunkBusters random memory numbers.
As PunkBuster scans the entire virtual memory of a machine, malicious users were able to cause positive messages en masse by transferring fragments of text from known cheat programs to a large-population IRC channel. When PunkBuster recognized the text in the user`s IRC client text buffers, users were blocked.  On March 25, 2008, Even Balance confirmed the existence of this feat.
