The most common reason for these false identifications is that Cheat Engine makes use of some techniques also used in trojan rootkits to gain access to parts of the system, and therefore gets flagged as suspicious, especially if heuristic scanning is enabled in the anti-virus program's settings. Newer versions of Cheat Engine are less likely to be blocked by anti-virus programs so features like code injection can be used without problems. Implementations[edit]

The attack is fairly simple and can be carried out with rudimentary hardware. The repercussions for the average computer user are minimal, but if you’re a secret agent, power user, or some other kind of encryption-using miscreant, you may want to reach for the Rammstein when decrypting your data. This acoustic cryptanalysis, carried out by Daniel Genkin, Adi Shamir (who co-invented RSA), and Eran Tromer, uses what’s known as a side channel attack.
