|Some coding enthusiasts have discovered a little something in Ubisoft's Uplay platform for PC leading others to blast it as a 'rootkit'. It stealthly installs a browser plug-in which isn't secure.
The plugin granted its discoverer "unexpectedly (at least to me) wide access" to websites. It's a rather embarrassing hiccup if true.
UPDATE: Trend Micro's Rik Ferguson, director of the security research firm, has said it's "not a malicious root, just really bad code." It's "a huge risk" .

|The third-party data center that holds many of Ubisoft's servers providing online capability for its titles will be ditched in favour of a new facility. That means some online downtime.
Six titles in total will be unplayable during the transition with an even split on PC and Mac. H.A.W.X. 2, Might & Magic : Heroes VI and The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom are named.

From that point of view it "is a success". Ubisoft has been using this system since Settlers 7, which then saw it expand to all Ubi PC titles released afterward.
