Default Ubisoft Installing DRM Rootkit/Trojan[Dailytech]

Apparently the following games contain a DRM rootkit that "...allow open access by any website via the opened "door" inside the affected browser." Source
  • 5 Assassinís Creed games;
  • 3 Tom Clancy games;
  • Driver: San Francisco;
  • Settlers 7.
Update: The article was edited to refer to the DRM Rootkit as: "As the plug-in does not mask its presence, in its current form it is closer to an exploitable plug-in aka. an accidental Trojan than a rootkit by definition, hence the text was changed to correct this."

Looks like Ubisoft gets to hang out with Sony in my "never ever buy anything they have any involvement in" list.
