game servers push their users in a hackable situation

game servers push us into unsecure behaviour.Secure behaviour is surfing with the least privilege wich will be standard in the next IE 7 But game servers ask that you be an administrator on your machine will playing games on their servers because they probably need to install and interact with things. Well may be they will have to change the way they work or put a really strong authentification and defense wall around them and their users (p.ex. no other internettraffic allowed during playing so other webbased applications can't use the administrator level to install while the surfer hasn't seen it because he is chasing cars and killing dragons). I can't imagine what will happen when their servers get hacked, with all these users on administrator level on their computers. http://silverstr.ufies.org/blog/archives/000847.html  a good read about the least privilege issue http://www.criticalsites.com/phynds/PermaLink.aspx?guid=5...
