    More info...
    Posting this for anyone that owns a Uplay account (it is to be assumed most reading this will), change your password ASAP as there has been a big security breach with Ubisoft.
    Reason for posting this is clear, a lot of you will have ubisoft games that require Uplay accounts. I'd advise you all to do so as even ubi.com is currently down.

    So what are hackers going to do with my password, go to rpgmaker.net and create a game in my name?
    Or log into my spam mail account and read my spam mail?

    Crap. I'm too late.
    I tried three different browsers and my iPad.
    I'm positive I have cookies on.

    Edit: on top of that, the password portal looks suspicious. Ubisoft's FB confirmed that's the real site. (Unless their FB is hacked too)

    Edit: They fixed it. Although you have to copy+paste links from your email instead of clicking them

    Holy cow. I mean, seriously, does no one other than Microsoft know how to secure their account databases?

    Well shit. Hmm, I'm not sure if I have an UPlay account or not. I own ZombiU but I'm not sure if I ever registered an account.

    Doesn't matter. Can't change passwords right now anyway.
