    I didn't read your link (lol) but I read another one the other day and isn't only possible if you launch games from the desktop that use origin and not from origin itself?

    Could be, yeah. But still Remote control security risk is a pretty huge security risk.

    Thought Steam had a familiar one too, but the fixed it pretty quickly and it wasn't so dangerous.
