Street Fighter V installs a driver (capcom.sys) to prevent players from cheating. The driver allows any program to run code in kernel mode.

It's a giant security hole.

A hefty price for keeping people from cheating.


People are cheating in multiplayer games? Implement the cheat protection in the goddamn server. They don't get it. You never trust the client. Installing shady software on the client's machine is NOT the way to go.

People are cheating in single player games? They play their game however the fuck they want. Don't like it? Fuck off. This kind of dictatorship gets on my nerves.


Anyway, the update that brought that security-hole driver is being rolled back.

What the hell.

It's amazing to see what some companies think is "innovative".

I'm not even sure whether or not this is worse than online-only.

It's Capcom, what do you expect?

Also, how can they know if you're cheating or not? What if you're setting up a specific server specifically made for cheats (has its own rules) and just screwing around?

the driver probably monitors the game's process memory and detects 'bad' changes. dunno.

Even if client monitoring is really annoying, you can still do it way better than it was done here. This is basically worst case scenario.

Client monitoring shouldn't even be. You don't trust the client. Ever.

Yeah. I'm not saying client monitoring is foolproof.

It"s shocking to see how companies are doing things like that so often, at least they are going to revert this.

I wouldn't be surprised if companies do this to attain your personal info and email and stuff like that while fulfilling their "designated" functions.

Well to be honest I wouldn"t be surprised too, but it"s still shocking even so.

I really dont see what problem they have with cheating in single player. Besides, its a fighting game, so cheating should be very limited and unentertaining besides maybe a moon jump.

Yes, anyways they always and should manage cheating from server side not from the client side too.

Almost as bad as how the 3DS eShop handles security.

Almost.

This is offtopic, but I heard from an acquaintance of mine that the list of games that you own are saved client side on the actual handheld, not server side to an NNID or something like that.

So you could change it to make it that the client says that you own every game, and then, well, you would be able to download any game on the eshop without paying for them.

Oh, in that case it's their problem, for street fighter V, the problem is for the players.

Still shows that even major companies don't follow good security practices.

Not that it's surprising.
