Ubisoft uPlay Security Flaw

Computer and Video Games has follow-up on reports of a vulnerability in Ubisoft's uPlay service that could possibly allow the access of files on user's PCs. The story reflects initial impressions that this may have been included intentionally as a rootkit DRM, but they have subsequent comments from researchers indicating they think this was more likely an unintentionally security mess-up (thanks Joao). There's a follow up note on Kotaku on how to clean this out of your system if you are "infected" (thanks nin).
