Just curious as to what ring3 and ring0 mean? I hear a lot about it when avoiding detection and was wondering if someone could give an explanation as to the who's, why's and what's?

Ring0 is the kernel level. It's the programs that have access to everything, that is hardware, other programs, etc. Ring3 is the user level, that's how most of your applications run, eg. firefox, chrome, your games, etc. Rings are used to describe access level a program has basically.

To make it short, the advantage is that ring3 anti-cheat can do less about your hack if it is ring0. Or the other way around, you can do less about the anti-cheat if it's ring0 and your hack is ring3. That sums it up :)

To add onto what c5 said, in order to make some hacks through the kernel you would essentially have to write some drivers.... which is a very daunting task! Definitely not for beginners! :p
