ok..sorry guys. im not gonna play battlefield 3 for the next days, till i find out how i can stop origin from spying and changing my system..
I dont know where to put this here, so i posted it here in the origin buddy thread.cause i think u guys should know about all that..
I DONT WANNA START A FLAMEWAR OR ANYTHING. I just wanna show u what origin is doing..
I really love BF3 and i will play..when i found out how to stop this madness.
i just checked origin a lot with process monitor, explorer and my defense monitor...
first thing is..origin tried to change values in my firewall..That is NOT OK at all..it even tried to create a file inside my comodo folder(firewall).
Then it searched my Private picture folder..Holiday pics..These where on an different hardrive..
Also Origin´s eula is against EU LAW.
u can read some here:
i really love BF3 and all..but im not ok with that Spyware thing from EA..i think im gonna make a second account on my Windows with NO admin rights or other..so origin can only spy in his and bf3 ´s folder..This works and is allready tested..i just have to do it..
if u guys are interessted in it , heres a link to an german site where they are working and testing it all...very interesting..
Oh and please dont hate me for my findings..U need to understand that this is not ok at all from ea.
I dont even know if its ok to write about that and dont get in trouble..who knows, just saying..
And since Hilbert allready found out (in his GFX BF3 Perf Review) how stupid Origin can be, i decided to post my stuff..i mean what can go wrong?
oh boy and more to come..
is origin supposed to search trough this? highly private!?
i dont think so..PROOF:
origin scans customers TAX/FINANCIAL SOFTWARE!!!!!
and another one..
Origin ID : 1AKO
@Beta, there's a patched .exe available that gets allows you to run BF3 without Origin...
i do know that..(patched, hehe)
well. but i cant play it in coop or MP then...
And well thats the thing i want..
Also i wouldnt recommend using this..If origin finds that out, and i guess it will u are screwed..
i guess i do the stuff teh people do in the CB forum..just make an second win account with no rights at all..only whats needed, but its a lot of work..
nice..just found this tutorial to run origin in a sandbox..dunno if it works well..didnt test it yet..
Nevermind, got it myself.
I would like to get in on this. My origin ID is the same as my guru3D id. chas1723
i havent noticed orgin doing anything fishy. everything is kept on seperate drives and all 7 of them are encrypted. so even if orgin tried to scan them, it wouldnt get access to any of them. well except my ssd. which has my os and 2 programs. thats i aint worried about.
ive checked my firewall, nothing out of the ordinary there. orgin has permission access only. bf3 is incomming and out going. i checked my logs and nothing going on there either. but i will definitely keep an eye out.
thanks for the heads up.
I kept logs on origin for a few days and never caught it doing anything, I have my firewall pretty locked down and logged any incoming /outgoing connections and data.
Interesting what you found though, I will definitely continue to monitor it.
well, u guys log the firewall..u need to log the stuff thats happening on ur PC..with process monitor/explorer etc..
also i have comodo defense+. its a pretty strong defense..and it logs all stuff . i can change settings and then for every thing that origin will do it asks me..what ever it is..
and its quite a lot..cant even play, hehe..
theres even more happening...here are the things i and others found:
and the pics from me, where origin tried to create and change stuff in my comodo Firewall/defense folder..
datei ändern = change file...
oh, and i do think that deserves a own thread..cause we dont need to spam this buddy up thread..i just didnt know where to post this stuff..
u think its an good idea to make one?
not that EA get shere and sues me for bad image.. lol..just joking
This is what happens when you sign into Origin...notice all the connections and remote addresses?
