PS3 leaderboard hack ruins Modern Warfare 2 for everyone

Time for yet another story about what great people we gamers can be. Some nefarious new hackery has been wrecking the PS3 version of Modern Warfare 2, allowing cheaters to scale the top of the leaderboards with ludicrously high scores. Not ones for subtlety, the cheaters have awarded themselves impossible statistics, such as gameplay time running into tens of thousands of days. 

The problem appears to be incredibly widespread, with hacking information readily available online for people with so little self-esteem that they need to cheat in an online videogame to make themselves look like they've accomplished something in life. So far, neither Activision or Infinity Ward have responded to the this new issue, although a fix shall surely come soon. 

So, why is it that the PS3 version is suffering all these hacks? Perhaps because they know Sony won't be doing anything about it? Looks to me like the PlayStation Network could well become a haven for the scumballs of online gaming.
