Why would anyone voluntarily let a game put a kernal program that is running even when the game isn't on their PC?
I have heard of Vanguard, but until you guys mentioned this, I didn't know that their anti-cheat program runs at ring 0.
Reading up on it, apparently BattleEye, used by Fortnite, Ark:Survival, Arma, DayZ, Insurgency, PUBG, Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, etc etc. is also a Ring 0 level program.
BattleEye states pretty publicly that they are ring 0, I wonder what other anti-cheat programs are and don't mention it?
Sad state of affairs. I guess I'll be sticking with single player only games as much as possible.
