Valve To Block Steam Under Virtualization

April 1, 2021

Kenworth S. - In a surprising (and possibly unfortunately timed) move to attempt to curtail the rampant cheating problem plaguing even VAC enabled titles, Valve will soon be refusing connections to Steam made by virtual machines. A virtual machine is simply an operating system run inside another operating system, and has recently been used as a way to effectively create an unlimited number of disposable PCs with which to cheat, get banned, and repeat. Prior to this recent surge of aim hacks, spam bots, and other nuisances in titles like Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Valve took no issue with gamers using virtualized PCs to play games they might otherwise not have access to, but it looks like this is coming to an abrupt and rather unfortunate end, with the only timeframe given being “soon.”
