[citation][nom]waikano[/nom]Firmware Infected? Since when are drivers considered firmware updates?[/citation]
FYI, the Razer Copperhead,etc has Firmware updates available and the firmware update files were also infected apparently, not just the drivers.

They could just as easily have the same problem as Razor so don't hold your breath. One misconfigured router or missing system update is all it takes. Or just one lazy sys admin, or a persistent hacker or disgruntled employee or...the list goes on.

You mean the one I'm about to participate in?
[citation][nom]zcubed[/nom]"Because Razer USA's peripherals are mostly geared toward gamers, they are more at risk because they tend to disable antivirus protection to gain more system resources."Say what? Never heard of any gamers do this. Sounds like a dumb idea and I have been an avid PC gamer for over a decade. Just overclock your graphics card ppl.[/citation]
Tons of online FPS players do this. They do anything and everything to get an edge, including myself.
lol, or you could just get an antivirus that doesnt use a bunch of system resources. I challenge anyone with a computer bought in the past 5 years to be able to tell whether or not eset nod32 is running in the background while playing any game. I'm on a 1.6ghz atom netbook atm, and its using a whopping 2mb of ram and 0% cpu and takes a whole 2-3 seconds to boot, so i don't think disabling it would give any gamer any sort of "edge".
