Sony's malware uninstaller leaves your computer vulnerable

Matti sez, "The ActiveX component that is required for the uninstallation of Sony's DRM system is scriptable by everyone, and allows at least rebooting the system in a trivial fashion (see demo on the site) with a few lines of html and javascript. There's possibly more to it, since it leaves methods such as 'InstallUpdate' and 'ExecuteCode' on the system, again scriptable by anyone and everyone. Virus writers will love this stuff."


(Thanks, Matti!)
