First reported by the Verge, Activision Blizzard announced on January 4th, that it filed a lawsuit against EngineOwning, who makes their dollars by advertising cheats, not only for Call of Duty, but for many popular online shooters. Activision Blizzard is using the suit to try and shut down distributors of cheating software and likely scare any other would-be shrewd business people.

Activision Blizzard has been putting in a lot of work to disrupt hackers, releasing their new Ricochet anti-cheat system in Warzone last December. It will be interesting to see how this suit goes, and whether it scares other players out of this space.
