Sony Rootkit Signatures Now Available With MS Anti-Spyware

The Windows AntiSpyware Beta will be able to detect and remove this as well with the 11/17/05 signature release. Detection and removal will also be added to the December release of the Malicious Software Removal Tool which will be released the second Tuesday of December. We also wanted to take a moment to confirm that we are not removing or disabling Sony’s XCP software. We are only removing the rootkit component published by First 4 Internet which is included as part of Sony’s XCP software. We will continue to monitor the situation and react as conditions change. - Anti-Malware Engineering Team : Sony rootkit signatures now available
