The VM detection is bad and unnecesary complicated.
Running in a VMWARE player the log file says its running in a PHYSICAL machine. SEBbrowser VM detection code is bad and unnecessary complicated,

Look at the red pill vm detect code for a truly simple vm detection in 4 lines of C code:

  • The current SEB VM detection was based on sources which made us believe it was a good solution (and looks like our internal tests were done with other versions of VMs), but thank you for the link. We will test this simple vm detection and when it really works well build it into the next version asap.
