The Absolutely Perfect, Unbreakable, Bug-Free, Very Good kernel-mode anticheat that riot wants to run on your computer....
Banned someone for plugging in their phone to charge. Golly.
Tell Riot: "I won't play your game until you remove the Chinese rootkit that spews false positives anyway"
Here, I trimmed out the only part of the LoR teaser that's actually worth watching.
Little punk buddy doing what he does best: Building something amazing with a part someone was careless enough to drop into Zaun.
It's okay, you don't miss much after this scene. Just shittier inventors using Ekko's technology with like, no fucking attribution.
@sasha_sorokin I had a situation like that:
*laptop is connected to the video projector*
/audience is ~20 ppl/
*goes into tty, quickly enters password*
*to the username field*
Somebody from the audience: "wow, that's a cool username you have"
Me: "wait what."
Hi we're tencent, and getting # @ ur pc wasn't enough for us.
We're deeply concerned about cheating in our shitty f2p mobile games too, and that's why starting with Teamfight Tactics and Wild Rift, we're requiring full access to the baseband radio of your phone. If you own an iOS device, you will be required to deploy our firmware to the Secure Enclave.
because cheaters and no other reason, capitalist scu- I mean valued customer
--riot "tencent is what your privacy is worth to us" games
"we could already steal your grandma's secret recipes from userland"
You sure could. What you couldn't do is monitor network traffic, monitor keystrokes, modify the libraries of other programs, read cryptographic keys from memory, access raw sensor data, or just straight up have NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM on millions of computers so that people don't aimbot your shitty f2p tf2 clone.
Why should I have to build an airgapped computer just to play tencent's horseshit games on?
the company that can't balance their fucking moba
the company that thinks Chromium Embedded Framework is suitable for a game client
the company that can't even figure out how to curb sexual harassment in the workplace
wants to run their anticheat in kernel mode
Only displays this on mobile browsers. Firefox on Linux shows a 404.
hey so uh...
stupid people are burning down "5G towers" (so any cell tower they decide has 5G) because 5G now supposedly causes coronavirus.
RF causes covid now gaiz. spread the word!
Zoom's encryption has some major flaws, is "not suited for secrets", and Zoom has servers in China generating meeting encryption keys for users in other countries, Citizen Lab researchers discover https://theintercept.com/2020/04/03/zooms-encryption-is-not-suited-for-secrets-and-has-surprising-links-to-china-researchers-discover/ (by me)
@electricsand HIPAA, PCI DSS and similar ain't no joke. Neither is intellectual property theft.
Fact of the matter is, Zoom video calls aren't end-to-end encrypted, and compliance departments across the country are losing their minds.
Even outside of the use of Zoom, last-minute panicked attempts to get work-from-home working is going to lead to a spectacular amount of breaches.
Hacker, comedian, RED Scout fan, gold Ekko one-trick. Watching them sorting debris.
