DICE has found itself embroiled within a bit of a Battlefield 3 faux pax as it was discovered one of its Battlelog moderators was a hacker.

The unofficial Battlefield Blog reports that the player - who went by the alias 'MrPropper777' - had been promoted to a community moderator by DICE, and was given privileges such as the ability to delete other users' posts.

The player has since had his privileges removed, and his stats wiped.
