Removing Sony DRM rootkit

After a little digging, I found an article on that gives a brief description of First4DRM (the rootkit that Sony/BMG audio CD’s have been surreptitiously installing on unsuspecting users of Windows computers). The malwarehelp article also links to removal instructions. I haven’t tested the removal tool or manual instructions, so caveat emptor! Let me know about your experience if you are unfortunate enough to get hit with this.

About Jim Vanderveen

I'm a bit of a Renaissance man, with far too many hobbies for my free time! But more important than any hobby is my family. My proudest accomplishment has been raising some great kids! And somehow convincing my wife to put up with me since 1988. ;)
