    Security flaw in the origin URL scheme hook



    Sorry appears time-code YT URLs still don't work in bbcode.

    It's around 12:30

    Origin by itself is a malware.
    Seriously. why they think adding extra software as 'protection' is a good idea when its susceptible to things like this... and of course, DOESN'T prevent piracy in the first place?

    I've checked and there hasn't been an Origin client update in about a week.

    Too bad some games are Origin exclusive.

    All EA games yes, but not ALL games in existence... so 'some games' applies.
