Ubisoft releases official statement about Blood Dragon Uplay hack

Uplay

By on April 11, 2013 at 9:21 am

Ubisoft have contacted us with an official statement regarding the hack earlier in the week which saw users gain access to the entire Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon game (and others) by using a simple text editor.

“We are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it quickly,” reads the official statement. “Uplay’s PC download service will be unavailable until the problem is fixed, but no personal information was compromised and all other Uplay services remain available.”

We’ll bring you further news as we have it.

What did effect uplay altering the services the other day was
we couldnt play GRFS1 PC for 2 hours

The other night when all this was going on and the
Ubi Forum Staff had no clue why it was down .

Looks like uplay gaming service for GRFS was shutdown because
of the uplay store going down , yet SCC on PC was playable

It ended up being the community (Me and other player) that told Ubi Forum staff what was happening:-
