Ubisoft DRM servers down due to DDoS attack

Posted on Monday, March 08 2010 @ 17:30:54 CET by

It appears the downtime of Ubisoft's DRM servers was caused by a fierce DDoS attack. The game publisher claims only five percent of Assassin's Creed II and Silent Hunter 5 players were unable to enjoy their games due to the attack, and denies the DRM of these games has been fully cracked, although posts on message boards indicate the "unbreakable" DRM has indeed been fully circumvented.
The attack is an apparent protest at controversial new DRM controls by the video game publisher which mean customers have to be online in order to play its latest PC games such as Assassin's Creed II and Silent Hunter 5.


The controls, designed to combat piracy, have sparked much negative comment in the gamer community and apparently inspired action by hacktivists over the weekend that curtailed gameplay for some.
