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”.
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.
