Yeah you'd have to be a fucking moron to install this spyware on your machine

Completely agree, who would put on Uplay after having such an obvious security flaw recently?

Makes you kind of question the timing of their "finding out" about this security flaw. Lets say they knew beforehand but did not want to ruffle feathers with the already-peeved PC gaming community about their DRM, but they realized that their Storefront was coming soon down the pipeline, and revealing a security breach *after* would completely discredit such a young platform. I just don't trust Ubi enough.. they have made some pretty signature blunders, not least among them is their DRM fiascos and completely abandoning online titles regularly within a couple years of launch. $1 prices are great and everything to have bargain-shopping PC gamers jump on-board for an early boost to your new platform.. but I don't think, with their history, that I will have anything to do with this.
