Agreeing to the new Terms of Service (which we all did without actually looking at them) for World of Warcraft now gives Blizzard permission to use their program “Warden” to search your harddrive and send any information they find and want back to them. That’s going a bit far for an anti-cheating system… the ToS is worded so that it doesn’t specify just the cheats! Come on corporate spys, this is a bit much for me!

At www.rootkit.com you can download a programme called ‘the governor’ which basically alerts you to what information is being sent to Blizzard. http://www.rootkit.com/vault/hoglund/Governor.zip
