Monion has it exactly right. I've had people tell me this post goes too far in making an issue out of nothing, and people have also told me that I wasn't hard enough on Blizzard, and that Warden is a rootkit. What's that old saying about you know you're doing it right when you piss people at both ends of the argument off?The bottom line is that Blizzard has access to your computer, and it's up to you whether that's OK or not. In my opinion, it's fine-- I trust Blizzard enough, as Monion said, to run 4 CDs worth of code on my PC, and so Warden doesn't worry me. But at the same time, realize what you're giving away-- you're giving them full access to your running processes and any sensitive info on your PC. If you're fine with that, great. If you're not, uninstall the game. It's up to you.
