Links to Windows guru Mark Russinovich's blog (Mark is one of the
creators of the really neat and useful Winternals and Systernals
utilities) where he tracks down a rootkit installed by a Sony copy
protected audio CD.
Would be nice if it results in a major backlash against Sony.
While I have no problem with legitimate DRM techniques, I must insist
that I am informed of and allowed to permit or deny any changes made
to my computer systems. Sony appears to be using Rootkit techniques
to mask the installation and presence of their DRM
software. Comments made by users at the end of Mark's article report
some problems have been caused by the DRM software.
