Easy Anti-Cheat addresses accusations of potential RCE Exploit following Apex Legends drama

We all know that fairness in competitive play is all we care about, but recently, there have been many waves regarding security in not just Apex Legends but many other games, too. The most recent shock has been relayed through Apex Legends when hackers have been able to infiltrate themselves and add aimbots to contestants‘ PCs. All of this during live streams, too.

While many have accused Easy Anti-Cheat, they have also jumped in to address the accusations of potential RCE exploit and vulnerability. The service offered by Easy Anti-Cheat is widely respected, and this is considered an enormous flaw. An RCE vulnerability could allow actors to execute arbitrary codes on users’ computers remotely.

As per Easy Anti-Cheat, their recent investigation of a potential RCE issue within their anti-cheat has proven negative, saying “there is not such a vulnerability within EAC“. This is what they said on X:

We know that this shook the competitive scene quite a lot, and no one knows why, and how all of this happened. Easy Anti-Cheat has also said that they are working with their partners to investigate this further, and will provide any support if necessary. Considering the scale of recent events, if such an issue existed in Easy Anti-Cheat, it would’ve appeared in other games too. So far, there’s nothing, so no one really knows what really happened.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
