* Ubisoft Virus Cracked

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
Ubisoft's "always online" virus, also known as their DRM strategy for recent titles like Assassin's Creed 2, has apparently been cracked completely.

The hack itself removes the DRM entirely and is being claimed by a consortium known as Skid Row. It requires users to download and install a modified version of the game's executable file to their computers. These modified game files, alongside a crack that can be applied to a retail version of the game, were uploaded to various file-sharing sites late Tuesday evening.

Attached to the "readme" file that comes with the hacked content (which can be found here), Skid Row alerted other hackers that the group's methods were safeguarded against reverse-engineering in order to fend off competing hacking groups and Ubisoft itself.
Hopefully, Ubisoft will drop this insane DRM scheme now... but don't count on it.
