EAC has recently black listed battleye due to this repo so you can no longer bypass EAC using BattlEye


BattlEye proxies NtReadVirtualMemory and NtWriteVirtualMemory in lsass.exe/csrss.exe but doesnt bother to check the handle privilage....

you cannot use this to read/write the process that battleye is protecting but you can use this to read/write any other process you can open a simple handle too. Rust, Valorant, you name it, just open a PROCESS_QUERY_LIMITED_INFORMATION handle and pass it to BEDaisy. The reason this works is two fold, firstly BattlEye assumes that the handle already has this access, secondly BattlEye only uses the handle to get the EPROCESS so they can call MmCopyVirtualMemory. You can see this in my runtime logs of BEDaisy.

  • you cannot read/write kernel addresses
  • you cannot write to readonly memory with this
  • the PULONG NumberOfBytesRead pointer cannot be a kernel address (sorry tried lol)
  • you cannot read/write to the process being protected by battleye
  • bedaisy has to be loaded for this to work
  • you must be inside of lsass.exe
  • lsass.exe cannot be a protected process. (some systems protect lsass.exe)


This section will go into detail about what exactly is going on here. csrss.exe/lsass.exe have handles to all processes and since battleye strips the R/W access of the handle that these processes have to the game it can cause system instability. Thus bedaisy writes two pages of shellcode to both processes and inline hooks NtReadVirtualMemory and NtWriteVirtualMemory.

If you run a battleye protected game, open cheat engine, attach to lsass.exe, and navigate to NtReadVirtualMemory/NtWriteVirtualMemory you will see this inline hook...

This inline hook jumps to shellcode that packages all of the parameter values passed to NtReadVirtualMemory into the stack and then jumps to DeviceIoControl...

Now that you have a basic understanding of how this system works (and sorta why it is), lets look at what we can do! To begin we need to extract the driver handle at runtime, this can be done simply by extracting the address of the shellcode out of the inline hook of NtReadVirtualMemory. Now that we have the handle to the driver we can start sending IOCTL's to BattlEye. The IOCTL data is not encrypted nor complicated... this is what it looks like:

struct beioctl
	void*    ret_addr;
	HANDLE   handle;
	void*    base_addr;
	void*    buffer;
	size_t   buffer_size;
	size_t*  bytes_read;

In order to use this ioctl/functionality of bedaisy you need to put a valid return address into this structure. You can do that by sig scanning lsasrv.dll with this signature: 0f 1f 44 00 ? 8b f0 48 8b 0d ? ? ? ? 49 3b cd the address of this instruction is what you want to be your return address.
