Remarks

Rudimentary hack detection system. Was never used probably due to terrible implementation with little security.

Yes, it is possible for a PvPGN server to read EVERYTHING that is in the process' memory, including sensitive information such as your CDKey.

You have logs of its use?

Battle.Net clients still support it. So it can be used with Battle.Net emulators, or if someone uses man in the middle.
