Submission + - Ubisoft Online Services Compromised

jones_supa writes: An unnamed Ubisoft website has been cracked, and usernames, email addresses and password information has been compromised. Ubisoft claims that no financial information was obtained but in an 'abundance of caution' has requested users to change their passwords. While no service is never mentioned specifically, as the only system housing customer data, it's a safe bet that we are talking about Uplay and, that it was possibly also used as the attack vector. Last year, a browser exploit was identified with the Uplay plug-in that endangered users by allowing certain malicious websites access to player computers. Uplay is a cross-game interface introduced in 2009, allowing for digital distribution and social services across Ubisoft games.
