Valve Getting the Bans Back Together - Sets New Monthly VAC Ban Record

Gamasutra notes that Valve served up a record 600+K VAC bans in the month of December, saying this new record for bans comes right as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive went free-to-play. This was sparked by a tweet from Nors3 on the topic, and cross-referencing this with SteamDB indicates the December ban total covered a half-million more accounts than were banned in November. Here's a bit:

Data spotted by Nors3 on Twitter shows that Valve issued 609,373 VAC (Valve Anti-Cheat) bans in the month of December, a modest 500,000 increase from November’s numbers (according to the third-party tracker SteamDB) and what looks to be new all-time record.

SteamDB’s count for the month is a little bit higher at 611,497, but its week-by-week breakdown shows that the bans hit in 5 waves throughout December, with each giving between 56,000 and 85,000 accounts the ax.
