You cannot be banned for joining a hacked lobby. That is a well-known fact.

Thus, your ban must have been caused by something else.

You can not get VAC banned for joining a hacked (modified) lobby.

From the sticky above

Quote:
I have received a VAC ban - what do I do now?

As Valve has a zero-tolerance policy towards cheating, all VAC bans are permanent in nature and will not be lifted over time. Once you receive a VAC ban you may no longer play on VAC secure servers.

You may continue to play your single-player games. You may also continue to play on VAC-insecure servers. You may access a list of insecure servers by doing the following:
  • Open Steam.
  • Select the "View" drop-down tab.
  • Select "Servers".
  • Select "Change filters".
  • Select "Not-Secure" under the VAC drop-down list.
I believe VAC has made a mistake in banning me - what do I do now?

These forums only offer user to user support and as a result this forum section should only be used to find information on the VAC system. The forum community (including volunteer moderators) are unable to investigate VAC bans. The policy on these forums is that Steam account specific issues must be referred to Steam support. If you believe you have been banned for an unjust reason then you must raise the issue with Steam support. Details on how to contact Steam support may be found below.
we can't help you here but it is worthwile reading the stickies.

Just to clear things up.
You have a VAC ban (does your profile says 'Bans on Record')?
Or you have a IW awarded Ban??

I think IW is issuing bans on his own to reported profiles

If it is a VAC ban... You didn't get it from a hacked lobby.

If it's a VAC ban, then it could be from ANY external modification to the game.

FIRST OF ALL:
The chances of you and only you being incorrectly VAC banned are less than the chances of winning the lotto.

SECONDLY:
Is it a VAC ban or is it a IW ban? If it's a VAC ban, sorry, something else caused it 100%.

If it's a IW ban, contact Activision support.
