Thank you Sony!

Sony releases update for DRM software. The company behind the technology, First 4 Internet, has now released an update for the software. After visiting the web site, downloading and installing the update, it now seems that the DRM software no longer attempts to hide anything on the computer. The rootkit driver (aries.sys) is removed from the system during the update. The update from Sony is available here Thanks also goes to the quite excellent research work done by Mark Russinovich at Sysinternals relating to the "Sony rootkit" incident.
