Following the leak of Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon yesterday, Ubisoft has disabled PC downloads via its Uplay service while it fixes the exploit.
Users were apparently able to download any game on the service for free via a simple executable file, which tricks the software into thinking you own the game. The exploit has been used for a while, but only came to light yesterday after it was discovered that the same file could be used to download Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon weeks ahead of launch.
The download weighed in at 3051MB and contained the full game. “No personal information was compromised,” the publisher told Polygon. “Uplay’s PC download service will be unavailable until the problem is fixed however all other Uplay services remain available.”
