Ubisoft DRM Lets Remote Attackers In

A new report claims that Ubisoft's DRM gives attackers remote access to your system. Not sure why no one noticed this before. frown

Hacker Tavis Ormandy has discovered a serious vulnerability in a well-known PC game DRM system. The Google engineer said that after buying a game from Ubisoft he became aware that its "Uplay" browser plug-in might prove problematic. In the early hours of this morning Ormandy confirmed that the add-on allows remote and "wide access" to machines running the DRM, potentially giving malicious attackers free reign to wreak havoc.
