Ubisoft has released a statement announcing that they've released a "forced patch" to fix the "flaw" in the Uplay app for PC. This comes in response to the discovering of security flaws in the app, which caused many to as a "rootkit".
In the statement, Ubisoft announced, “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. An updated version of the Uplay PC installer with the patch also is available from Uplay.com.
Ubisoft takes security issues very seriously, and we will continue to monitor all reports of vulnerabilities within our software and take swift action to resolve such issues.”
