From PCMag, Sony’s incredible gaffe - creating a DRM applet that loads prior to the operating system - has caused an incredible furor. Sony agreed to suspend the program , but that’s not all. Now the rest of the world is piling on. Microsoft now says it will delete the rootkit directly with its anti-spyware program, and it’ll be included in the December version of the Malicious Software Removal Tool. And it looks like the Macintosh, which is also affected by the rootkit , might still be at risk.
I would be very careful of any of the new CD’s I buy - if they are from Sony/BMG then they might have this!
