Watch Dogs has launched today but it hasn’t been smooth sailing for the highly-anticipated open-world title. According to Ubisoft it appears that the authentication servers for its digital distribution service Uplay has been malfunctioning.
Honest PC users aren't in need of yet another reason to rage against Digital Rights Management (DRM) schemes that often serve to setup hoops for law abiding citizens to jump through without stomping out software piracy, but just in case, here's another one. Ubisoft's Uplay client may contain a rootkit that could allow remote hackers to infiltrate your system and take control. Yikes!
