Pearl Abyss and malware installation


(Sukur) #1

I have just learned that Black Dessert Online installs a rootkit on your computer to spy on you disguised as anti-cheat software. I encourage everybody to search about its details and I´m sure thats illegal on any civilized country.

I would like to know CCP stance on this issue. And if possible a official statement.

Don’t worry your government is already spying on you

Now that we have covered what Xigncode does, there are specific concerns we wanted to address directly:

  • Xigncode does not sit in the background to idly collect your personal information and share it with others.
  • Xigncode is not a rootkit. It does not enable a user to gain control of a computer system without being detected. As explained above, it operates in a very strict manner.
  • Xigncode is not an ever-present virus that is impossible to remove from your PC. Without a game running, the software is and will remain inert.

I can vote my government away. But I have no power against a Korean private buccaneer.

If the game spys on me it not only dead. I may even go to court.

Why should i Believe that guy?. Do I have proof?.

Go complain on BDO forums this is EVE forums.

Why go to court if you are dead, kinda pointless

I’d suggest the cemetary for example

Im not interested in BDS. I play EVE.

And go away troll

CCP will do as they’re told if told to.
This should be obvious to you since the takeover.
