The system scans for modified files and will ban the player if it finds any modifications. The player may then be banned from all VAC-secured servers. This ban will be permanent and may place additional restrictions on the player's account. This ban could happen at any point, even weeks after the initial detection.
Banned users are unable to join the Steam Translation Server project, nor are they able to acquire a refund for the game, even if the other requirements are met.
