Star Force installs itself and gives itself ring 0 access through ring 3 (User level). Unlike a regular driver that does that to steer a single device, SF can "steer" multiple devices. It is only a matter of time for anyone to abuse this as this grants any code ring 0 access through SF. It's like bombing your OS back to the Win98 stone age.
I'm waiting for the first virus like program to use SF. With this kind of discussion about SF it is only a matter of time.
