Now Suncomm (whose new CEO is an ex-Sony employee who was involved with their DRM program) has issued a new uninstaller. No word on whether this one was executed any more competently than the first one. Link, Sony Rootkit Roundup Part I, Sony Rootkit Roundup Part II
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
