Some coding enthusiasts have discovered a little something in Ubisoft's Uplay platform for PC leading others to blast it as a 'rootkit'. It stealthly installs a browser plug-in which isn't secure.
The plugin granted its discoverer "unexpectedly (at least to me) wide access" to websites. It's a rather embarrassing hiccup if true.
UPDATE: Trend Micro's Rik Ferguson, director of the security research firm, has said it's "not a malicious root, just really bad code." It's "a huge risk" .
The upcoming free Earth multiplayer downloadable content for Mass Effect 3 highlights the upcoming Xbox Live Marketplace content revealed by Major Nelson's blog.
Other notable offerings includes a Bethesda DLC sale with content for Oblivion and Fallout 3 at 50% off, followed by a half-off sale for Ubisoft games. The Summer of Arcade proceedings start with the release of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD on the 18th July as well.
R.U.S.E. developer Eugen Systems has just announced their new real-time strategy title called 'Wargame: European Escalation'. It's all about the action.
While Ubisoft's R.U.S.E. liked deceit, Eugen's Wargame prefers the straight up fight. It's set during the Cold War and has NATO cross blades with the Soviets.
UbiSoft has announced that R.U.S.E. will be getting Asian-themed downloadable content tomorrow, February 16, in the form of the "The Pack of The Rising Su"n, which will add the Japanese and three scenarios. This DLC will be available for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
