Battlefield 3 Bans Gone Wrong?

The Battlelog forums and reddit each feature threads with posts from a surprising number of users claiming they've been banned from playing Battlefield 3 online due to PunkBuster violations in spite of no wrongdoing. Kotaku points the way to an apparent explanation on a site that sells and supports cheats for the game where posts describe a systematic campaign that's currently underway to get innocent users banned to demonstrate the fallibility of the PunkBuster methodology. A recent post to Battlelog from a moderator says: "PB is having an issue at the moment.. DICE and EA are working with Even balance to find cause and fix it asap!" Thanks The Grifter.
