    Is a bunch of stuff anyone can research but to name few

    1.) Ring 3 and 0 have huge differences in capacities unlike stated
    2.) userspace and kernel levels also have a myriad of differences and scopes for an attack
    3.) Ring 0 is an extremely dangerous place to run anything, specially a closed BLOB
    4.) Denuvo can literally do anything and without a very deep security audit would be extremely hard to prove anything(because is operating inside ring 0 or lower) and since its commercial software to reach that level you probably need a huge amount of money on lawyers and some years to reach the point an CVE actually exists unless they want to like Microsoft or Apple do.
    5.) The fact you cannot prove is doing anything illegal it does not imply is not doing anything illegal and you should always assume so unless you can factually prove is indeed not doing anything illegal(this is the most basic concept for cyber security), specially something running at a lower execution ring since no regular tool can be trusted to detect said illegal activity in the first place.

    In the end promote trust on something that run on a lower execution ring(or even regular ones) because you think is a witch hunt(and whatever else he said) because there is no proof of wrongdoing is extremely naive

    I dislike how Michael makes everyone think Wine is unique to Linux and MacOS. I've actually never ran wine on MacOS, but I have run it many times on FreeBSD and following last years Google Summer of Code the NetBSD support is supposed to be pretty good too. The only major OS lacking wine support is OpenBSD and it used to work on OpenBSD a long time ago. Sorry for being that a hole but the *BSDs that support wine should get mentioned too!

    Well, Denuvo making anything illegal or not aside, the dude on that post made sure no one will hire him for kernel/security research related jobs any time soon. Jeez just WoW

    Some of the kernel level stuff Denuvo installs is pretty shady. I don't think it's outright malware, but it's certainly a shady line where a publisher is over stepping their bounds of snooping into your system to make sure you're not cheating / stealing.

    An idiotic correction. Denuvo is DRM, not malware. Malware is something which actively harms your PC or life whuke Denuvo does nothing aside from making it harder to steal something it protects.

    Hopefully they fixed installer bugs..., they broke it in recent versions, partially fixed it, and not it's semi-broken.

    Because some of us own the original Sierra releases and refuse to use Steam?

    Tangentially related, I just found out this week how badly the Linux port of Black Mesa currently sucks, even though it worked great last June. Proton works, but for some reason the loading screens get about 10x longer…
