Re: 'the world warned Epic that what they were doing was putting users security at risk'
Epic's security it not first class as their expertise is game tech.
That made me laugh. If you had first hand experience with their game "tech", you wouldn't consider it first class. The Unreal Engine is the Ryan Air of game engines - it may get you where you want to go, but you'll feel dirty, bruised, and abused when you get there.
