Sony's rootkit used to cheat in WoW

Blizzard Entertainment, the maker of World of Warcraft, has created a controversial program that detects cheaters by scanning the processes that are running at the time the game is played. Called the Warden, the anti-cheating program cannot detect any files that are hidden with Sony BMG’s content protection, which only requires that the hacker add the prefix “$sys$” to file names.


Great isn’t it. Thanks alot Sony.

Really, that’s fucking hilarious! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Actually it isn’t… but it’s very cool to see conglomerates protect themselves and fuck each other at the same time :slight_smile:

The corporate world is just one big DRM orgy :slight_smile:

Bet you it’s being used in counter-strike as we speak.
