I need your help: Some time ago I read about an anti-cheat software that exposed data of the users. I think it only exposed data of users that were identified as cheaters but I can't tell anymore. I'd like to contribute the story to @fsfe as an example of bad DRM. Please boost!

@le_ArthurDent that's how "antivirus" works, and anti-cheat just do the same thing, but without asking the user

@le_ArthurDent
That was Epic Games' anticheat, iirc. But I think Valve's and Blizzard's do it too.

@aladar Thank you! I guess that's what I was talking about. I did some research on anti cheat software on my own in parallel and it seems that all of these pieces of software dig really deep into your system to make you a transparent user.
