Block CD/DVD DRM and Rootkits Easily
NewsHound writes "Sony recently showed the extent to which they will go to attempt to copy protect their Music CDs. The latest use of Rootkits in their DRM has gone way too far. I am personally boycotting Sony Products. Stopping these sorts of infections and getting around DRM is much easier then you think. Simply disabling the Windows Autorun feature blocks them from installing cold. Losing the convenience of Autorun is a small price to pay for the peace of mind that your computer will not become the dumping ground for future DRM Viruses and Rootkits that can cripple the ability to use your CD/DVD drive."
