Ubisoft DRM servers hacked again

This time, the perpetrators leave a clear message and proof

Posted on
Saturday evening publisher Ubisoft's website Ubi.com was hacked by cracking group Skidrow, and replaced by a signature and message a crack would soon be released (presumably for Assassin's Creed II, the most high profile release amidst the DRM debacle - the other titles such as Silent Hunter 5 has already been presumably cracked).The cracking group specializes in allowing both legitimate users and pirates to bypass inconvenient protection schemes on their PC games, like disk checks and online authentication.

Whether or not this is the second hack effort by the same group from a few weeks ago, or a new attempt against Ubisoft's DRM methods, remains unknwon.
 
In any case, this is the latest in a series of messages sent to Ubisoft from gamers who want to play titles on reasonable terms. While the company is decreasing the value of their titles for many with this scheme, other publishers are finding great success with free DLC, optional online features and no DRM.
 
Regarding the recent server downtime, Ubisoft plans to compensate gamers soon and reminds you to keep checking your e-mail.
