SONY MALWARE: PART 2

So... it turns out that Sony's "fix" doesn't actually fix anything. It just changes the way it hides the files that it's using to spy on you.

From the article:
The update is more than 3.5 megabytes in size, and it appears to contain new versions of almost all the files included in the initial installation of the entire DRM system, as well as creating some new files. In short, they're not just taking away the rootkit-like function - they're almost certainly adding things to the system as well. And once again, they're not disclosing what they're doing.

That's fantastic. Sony is great.
