For those hit by the recent ban wave over the past two days

Many of us were recently banned without warning due to an error with the VAC system catching a false-positive. (See this thread)

For those who were recently banned and believe they are innocent:

if not unbanned yet contact customer support. Most of us who were banned recently have already been unbanned. If you are innocent your items and ban will be reverted.

Also, there has been rumours it might be Windows update related issue. Did any of you updated your pc (or did your pc automatically update) this week itself?

I did have an automatic update two days ago, but these are supposed to be week-long delay bans, I believe.

and my older posts in the old thread as "proof" that I was banned


EDIT: But as I said I really hope it stays like that and that it's not just a server issue.

Just checked the accounts of people in that thread, they're unbanned, including OP.

Nice.

I just got unbanned, whatever happened it was obviously some f*** up on valve's part, so massive false positive on VAC servers or something.
they are correcting their mistake as we speak.
check your accounts

My account has been unbanned and the big cheater sticker has vanished.

VALVe, I really appreciate the lighting fast fix here. Thank you.

WTF I just started a game of TF2 and it's telling me I'm VAC banned.

I just reinstalled TF2 last week after over a year of inactivity. Nobody but me is using my gaming computer. I never logged on to my Steam account from any other computer.

Needless to say, never downloaded anything suspicious, let's not even talk about cheats. I f'ing hate cheaters.

What the hell is going on ? Man, I've never been sweating that much.
