Ubisoft Entertainment takes over web address used in Ghost Recon Beta scam

Ubisoft Entertainment has taken ownership of the domain name GhostReconBeta.com. The domain, which had been registered in April 2012 by a Netherlands man, had been used in a beta scam for the video game Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, the latest installment in the series, was released in May for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Beta scams for video games are fairly common online and usually involve a website and web address that are confusingly similar to that of a legitimate well-known brand. The websites will claim to offer beta keys to upcoming video games, but instead trick users into filling out survey scams and downloading malware to their computers. (PS3, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, Ubisoft, Xbox 360)
