A major MAJOR security compromise has been found in Ubisofts uplay software which can enable a malicious programmer a back door into your PC. It's a pretty serious security concern and would advise all those with any Ubisoft game installed to remove the plugin in your browser and uninstall any ubisoft product just to be on the safe side.
Ahh Ubisoft, you've gotta love their anti piracy methods which screw over everyone except the pirates.
Thanks for the heads up though.
Yeah, thanks OP for the heads up. Thankfully, the only Ubisoft game I have is unaffected (Anno 2070).
disabled in opera and chrome. cheers OP. one more ubisoft **** up.
thanks for the heads up
You are assuming I still give Ubisoft my money.
Surprisingly they got quite a few amazing games, it's a shame their anty piracy policies and stupid uplay are rubbish.
Ubisoft have released an update for it already:
well thats good,anno 2070 is my favourite game
I noticed. I played some driver just now and it was updating itself. Fair play for fast response.
I never buy PC Ubisoft games anyway. Shame for actual customers but at least it will show some of Ubisofts incompetence when it comes to the PC market at this point. All this DRM for games you can pirate anyway is ridiculous.
It is not really drm problem... It was a security hole in its software. It could happen to any company. Thought I guess everything goes if you want throw a rock at them.
quiet you! we're indignantly and indiscriminately ranting here
