updating: Denuvo's file protection situation is not particularly attractive these days as Just Cause 4, based on the latest in-house protection, was successfully hacked in just two days, joining a long list of prominent titles such as FIFA 19, Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 and Monster Hunter World, who have succumbed to pirate groups lately. Comfort to Valeroa? Not sure.
The original article: a new DRM technology called Valeroa purported to provide competition for the power of Denuvo, But it seems that the hackers had other plans
The debate over the necessity of file protection techniques in the digital content world and in the gaming market in particular is in full swing. On the one hand, it is impossible to deny the large piracy volumes that suffer from titles that are illegally distributed on the web, DRM But have nevertheless achieved tremendous commercial success because of the quality and respect they have shown to consumers.
In the present era, it seems that most of the prominent game distributors are clearly using DRM methods that will at least try to delay the pirated hacking of games to increase their revenue potential in the first few days or weeks - and the senior beneficiary benefiting from this situation is Denuvo, She has business and deals with most of the big names in the business. It is not surprising to find that there are other software companies that would like to get a piece of this profitable pie of content and file protections - and one of them is called Valeroa.
Valeroa's creators made ambitious public announcements about the launch of the first (and only) game based on their technology - that their system can not be hacked "within a reasonable time", thus ensuring protection from piracy to products in the first few weeks of their launch, Denuvo Which has been breached several times in a few days after the arrival of the titles to the shops, and in some rare cases even before the launch in stores.
Perhaps this challenge to network hacking groups was not a particularly smart move,City Patrol: Police, Valeroa 's first attempt to demonstrate its capabilities, has been breached within two days since launch - when According to Torrentfreak site The user responsible for hacking (who does not belong to the "established" pirated hacking teams) stated that it took him only twenty minutes to overcome the latest defenses. Definitely not something that matches the promises on the company's secure and reliable website.
So while arguments about the need to use theDRM Will probably continue forever, one thing seems quite clear - to challenge the fans of various burglaries who are out there in the net and get their attention is not a good idea under any circumstances.
