This isn’t the first time they’ve implemented a ban either, it was also reported that Activision has targeted largely popular cheat websites that were outside of the game.
This ban wave has gone out targeting one of the most popularly used cheat websites they have revealed, devs have also confirmed that their team has successfully banned over 200,000 accounts in total.

Anti-cheat update:— Infinity Ward (@InfinityWard) October 1, 2020
Since launch, the team has banned over 200,000 accounts for cheating across #Warzone and #ModernWarfare, including a new wave this week. We are continuing to deploy additional security updates and added backend enforcement tools. Zero tolerance for cheating.
Plenty of players were glad to see this course of action finally take shape however there has been some accusations that some accounts have been falsely banned.
Infinity Ward are yet to respond to these claims of those affected, maybe gamers will think twice before cheating next time.
