Ubisoft Games for Free With No DRM After Hackers Exploit uPlay

Ubisoft’s Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is not due for another few weeks but it’s already turning up on torrent sites.

The leak, a 3GB file for PC, was reportedly obtained by Russian hackers who exploited Ubisoft’s uPlay game launcher.

In addition to enabling access to Blood Dragon which was apparently just sitting there on Ubisoft’s servers, the exploit caused uPlay to think that users already owned other games.

According to Gameranx, this enabled titles to be downloaded for free and played offline without DRM.

Discussions currently taking place on Russian forums indicate that Ubisoft have still not fixed the problem.
