Mark Russinovich, being the clever chap that he is, found a rootkit embedded in the Sony’s CD’s DRM protection. You can read the article here on Mark’s blog, and on The Register
Trying to remove this rootkit effectivly “kills” Windows, but I am sure that someone will come along with a fix.
I for one will never buy a Sony product again purely based upon this information. Companies that hide this kind of crap on your system should be hauled into court. I cannot believe that they are even getting away with it. I would strongly suggest that anyone else purchasing Sony products does the same… hit them where it hurts…. product sales.
Grrrr…. my blood boils….
