Tavis Ormandy is at it again, this time offhandedly revealing a drive-by code execution vulnerability in Ubisoft's Uplay platform. A malicious website could cause the Uplay browser plugin to execute arbitrary commands on the victim's computer. The attack takes advantage of a feature that allows a visited website to launch a Ubisoft game but does not check that the command that the website issues corresponds to a legitimate game. The issue has been patched in an emergency update from Ubisoft.
