Ubisoft's PC DRM hacked?

'Always on' DRM can be taken off

Ubisoft's controversial 'always on' DRM, which has caused fury amongst PC gamers, has apparently been hacked.

The DRM is attached to every new Ubisoft PC game and requires that gamers have a constant connection to the Internet in order to play their games - But no more.

The hack, being claimed by a group called 'Skid Row', completely removes the hack by getting users to download and install a modified version of the game's executable file.

Neslted in the readme file that comes with the hack was a message to Ubisoft:

"Thank you Ubisoft, this was quiete [sic] a challenge for us, but nothing stops the leading force from doing what we do. Next time focus on the game and not on the DRM. It was probably horrible for all legit users. We just make their lifes [sic] easier."

Ouch.
