Ubisioft's Uplay had serious security vulnerability [resolved]

Postby Blín D'ñero » 30 Jul 2012, 17:00

Ubisoft has rolled out a 2.0.4 patch which appears to kill the vulnerability found in UPlay. The changelog for the patch says: "Fix addressing browser plug-in. Plug-in now only able to open UPlay application". We have tested the new update and confirm that the issue appears to have been resolved. If you own any game with UPlay support, we recommend running the client and allowing it to update in order to close the loophole.
