Russian Hackers Exploit uPlay, Download Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon

April 9, 2013 -

According to this Gameranx report some hackers in Russia are already playing Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, despite the fact that it isn't quite out yet. Apparently a group of Russian hackers have discovered an exploit in Ubisoft's uPlay digital distribution service that allows them to download the game without paying for it. The software tricks uPlay into thinking the user owns games that they have not actually purchased and allows them to get direct download links to versions that do not need to be online in order to play.

While this exploit seems to be active as of this writing, it is probably not a good idea to try it yourself because Ubisoft will ban your account. Ubisoft has not publically commented on this exploit or acknowledged its existence.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.

Great going, hackers!  When are you going to stop ruining things for the rest of us? (Rhetorical question).  I remember when your shenanigans held-up Half-Life 2 when you leaked the source code.  Then you forced Bioware to hastily rewrite ME3's ending when you leaked that as well, which resulted in a whole internet shitstorm.

Now you pull this.  And while it's probably not a big deal as those last two, I'm going to guess Ubisoft will have to hold back the release of Blood Dragon until this mess is sorted out.

Like they say, this is why we can't have nice things.

You also get some benefits from this. These hacks expose vulnerabilities that could be exploited for far more nefarious reasons than downloading an early copy of a game. That is if Ubisoft and others who get hacked in such ways pay attention and respond oppropriately.
