CLARIFICATION: Denuvo Anti-Tamper is NOT the same as Denuvo Anti-Cheat.Denuvo Anti-Tamper (henceforth DAT) is software used to obfuscate code during the compiling process. This makes it harder for pirates/crackers to crack the software through reverse engineering. This software has no bearing on the operating system but is built into the executable. It may cause game performance issues at times but that is the extent of it. DAT is what people generally are talking about when they say a game has "Denuvo".Denuvo Anti-Cheat (henceforth DAC) is the new anti-cheat introduced with update 1. It is an EXTREMELY invasive anti-cheat software that runs at ring-0 (kernel level) of your operating system. Read the thread for more informationPlease do not make the error of thinking these two things are the same.
Software should be designed to utilize the highest numbered ring, that is, using the least amount of privileges that it needs to function properly. Most applications operate in ring 3 as they do not need low level access to function. Lower level software such as device drivers usually operate somewhere in ring 1 or 2 as they need more access to the operating system than your average application.Ring 0 is reserved for the kernel. The kernel is the central part of the operating system which has complete control over everything in the system. Without the kernel the OS would not function. It is the single most fundamental part of any operating system as it controls the absolute basics such as Input/Output.You know the dreaded blue-screen of death? That is what is formally known as a kernel panic. A kernel panic occurs when the kernel encounters an unrecoverable error.
"If you have Doom Eternal on PC and you haven't updated, do NOT update."i probably would've made this your title, in case somebody doesn't know what kernel anti-0 level ring means
so is this like a rootkit or somethingi remember when the same thing happened to SFV, pretty crazy stuff
