I just tried it, and the exploit works on my PC. Accessing a web page with the exploit, it was able to use Uplay to launch Windows Calculator without my permission.
I'm uninstalling Driver and From Dust now, and hoping that is enough.
How to disable Uplay in Firefox:
Tools – Add-ons – Plugins – Disable the Uplay and Uplay PC Hub plugins
Settings – Preferences – Advanced – Downloads – Search “Uplay”, delete
Visit about: plugins and disable
Are we talking about the same uplay that didn't work 2 weeks ago?
Probably our AV was blocking the browser plugin backdoor... But they "fixed" it!

Its not a rootkit. its a really crappy written browser plug in that no where says its being installed. One more reason for me to never buy Ubisoft.
I am disapointed, not surprised, but disapointed by this...
LOL, this example actually works.
UBI coders actually used base64 to encode the name of the executable to be launched. FFS, that's n00bism of the highest level! Negligence and zero care for user's safety. Someone at UBI needs to get fired right now!
Ubisoft needs to recall all the DVDs on the market right now. Installing this crap even for a second puts your PC in some serious danger!!!Code:x.open("-orbit_product_id 1 -orbit_exe_path QzpcV0lORE9XU1xTWVNURU0zMlxDQUxDLkVYRQ== -uplay_steam_mode -uplay_dev_mode -uplay_dev_mode_auto_play") $ printf "C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM32\\CALC.EXE" | base64 QzpcV0lORE9XU1xTWVNURU0zMlxDQUxDLkVYRQ==
So you are telling me that...
Uplay is a ****ing crappy DRM to prevent pircay?
Yet every Ubisoft game is out there already pirated?
And ME who actually BOUGHT the games, get a crappy DRM.
And ME who actually BOUGHT the game get the risk of being hacked?
hahaha F U C K ---- Y O U
