Sony DRM Hides Trojan

Further to my post last week about Sony’s malware disguised as DRM it seems that a trojan is now taking advantage of the Sony malware.

From The Register: “This means, that for systems infected by the Sony DRM rootkit technology, the dropped file is entirely invisible to the user. It will not be found in any process and file listing. Only rootkit scanners, such as the free utility RootkitRevealer, can unmask the culprit,” warns Ivan Macalintal, a senior threat analyst at security firm Trend Micro.

This was rescued from the Google Cache. The original date was Thursday 10th November, 2005.
