Ubisoft says it has corrected the security flaws discovered this morning in the Uplay DRM system.

The company issued a statement saying: 

“We have made a forced patch to correct the flaw in the browser plug-in for the Uplay PC application that was brought to our attention earlier today. We recommend that all Uplay users update their Uplay PC application without a Web browser open. This will allow the plug-in to update correctly”.

Hear that, PC gamers? Hit that update button on Uplay and make sure your situation is secure. Or, you could disable the Uplay add-on in your browser, too.

The security flaw could make your PC vulnerable to hackers, and make your files accessible to strangers, although no reports of actual security compromises have been reported yet.

All of the best people are following Stephen Johnson's twitter feed. Also, email me if you wanna.
