Russian hackers have reportedly broken the security of Ubisoft's Uplay distribution platform, allowing them to illegally access content. The software hack allows them to mark a game as owned, and it seems to have already been used to download the unreleased Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. And, of course, release footage online.
Eurogamer reports that more than half an hour of Blood Dragon footage was posted to YouTube earlier today, then pulled. However, as the internet never forgets, it appears gamers are constantly uploading new footage onto the video sharing site. A simple search should find new videos, should this one go down:
Update - Regarding the hack, an Ubisoft representative has told Shacknews: "We are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it quickly. No personal information was compromised. Uplay's PC download service will be unavailable until the problem is fixed, however all other Uplay services remain available."
