Sony embedded computer anti-piracy software in millions of music disks/downloads which were subsequently recalled due to its opening a backdoor virus opportunity in user's PCs. The removal tool provided by Sony after recalling some 63M disks the software was put on, left a gaping security hole in Operating Systems.
Microsoft has apparently decided to fix the problem and presumably closed the security hole with this tool. I assume it will only work on Win XP systems, as that is the only platform supported by their antispyware program. I may be wrong, try it anyway.
Very big, little known/advertised problem in the music industry.
This is the inoculation.
Quoth the raven, nevermore.
Sony Copyright protection went too far.
