Microsoft should fix the vector too
According to eWeek, Microsoft's antivirus tools will delete Sony's DRM 'Rootkit'. A good start, but how about the infection vector? Microsoft should disable autorunning of programs on CD Insert, as Apple did years ago. As Windows runs such things with the full privileges of the logged-in user, and most users have admin privileges, this is an open door.
