Call of Duty's new Ricochet anti-cheat driver apparently leaks within a day of announcement

Last night, Activision announced a new anti-cheat solution for Call of Duty games, mainly Warzone, for now, followed by Vanguard later. Dubbed "Ricochet", the new anti-cheat has been designed by the company with the primary focus being on user privacy. To ensure that, the kernel-level driver powering Ricochet promises to run only when Call of Duty: Warzone is being played. You can read about the details here.

Sadly though, the Ricochet driver, or at least a part of it, seems to have already leaked out onto the web according to reports by Twitter user AntiCheatPD and ModernWarzone. Apparently, pay to cheat (P2C) developers are already hard at work trying to reverse the driver to eliminate the impact that Ricochet may have had on cheating in the Call of Duty games.

The driver has purportedly been divulged on to at least one cheat support forum and screenshots of these are available for viewing. The images were probably captured a couple of hours ago at least which implies that the alleged Ricochet driver has leaked within just a day of its official announcement.

From the looks of it, the leaked driver does look like a real thing but there's no official word from Activision yet to confirm or deny it.
