I usually like titles with a pun or something on those lines, attempting to find a funny side even in a disaster. Not this time. Not when the threat is so dangerous and imminent.
According to this article there’s a huge hole in Uplay’s browsers plugin which lets anybody run potentially anything on the victim’s computer.
I haven’t tested it personally having never installed Ubisoft’s Uplay and never planned to do so, but my second hand informations tell me it’s scary how easy and smooth is to manipulate Uplay customers through this exploit.
Not that I needed some more proof that any DRM system is the Bane (I haven’t watched latest Batman yet, I just liked the pop culture reference) of legit customers, but do you now?
Below here is the list of the game which are most vulnerable to this and which you should immediately uninstall before this exploit really goes out of hand.
