Current development for today:
Memory Signature Based Detection.
HXL is a new anti-cheat technology.
Currently supporting the Dragonfly's Special Force Engine, HXL can scan a whole processes memory signatures faster than any other current Anti-Cheat, it does this by optimizing multiple process threads as well as segmenting pages into easy chunks for analysis. Private/Mapped pages do not escape.
In this video the cheat makes attempts to obfuscate the module which contains the hack. HXL detects the cheat within moments of execution. Execution times would be greatly increased if the anti-cheat was to be embedded inside the game.
