The Sony DRM rootkit has been classed as “Malware” by several leading anti-virus companies and it has already been used to spread malicious Trojans.
However, Sony haven’t backed down completely and have refused to remove CDs using the rootkit currently on sale. There are 20 titles affected including:
- Celine Dion, On ne Change Pas (Epic)
- Neil Diamond, 12 Songs (Columbia)
- The Coral, The Invisible Invasion (Columbia)
(I don’t have to worry then )
