Microsoft To Defend Against Sony Rootkit

A lot of people have been complaining about Sony’s evil rootkit that infects your PC when you insert certain Sony music CDs. Well, Microsoft has announced that its security software will find and remove the malicious software. The Anti-Malware Team says that both Windows Defender (the new version of AntiSpyware) and the Malicious Software Removal tool (which is delivered free every month with Windows Update) will seek and destroy Sony’s awful invasive code. Additionally, Windows AntiSpyware has already been updated with the detection routines, and soon, the free online Windows Live Safety Center will be able to do it as well. Good work Microsoft!
