Most modern companies that rely heavily on information technology to ensure that their business is capable of moving forward at all times would definitely also invest a fair amount of money into security, considering the very real threat of hacking these days. It seems that a group of hackers has gotten their hands on Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and other gaming titles, circumventing DRM (Digital Rights Management) in the process. This happened after hackers broke into Ubisoft’s Uplay service, and it was not too long after that that the recently announced Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon has already been spotted on torrent sites as we mentioned in our earlier story.
If there is anything to add to the hacking of Uplay, it would be this – there is a silver lining in every cloud, and the silver lining here would be the equivalent of assurance from Ubisoft that no user information was compromised along the way. As they work to resolve security issues, Uplay services will remain available, and this is what Ubisoft mentioned, “We are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it quickly. No personal information was compromised. Uplay’s PC download service will be unavailable until the problem is fixed, however all other Uplay services remain available.”
