Sony’s OTHER DRM software uninstaller will be pulled



According to zdnet.com, Sony and SunnComm are pulling the OTHER DRM uninstaller from the web and it will be replaced with a safer version of the uninstaller. Researchers blogging at freedom-to-tinker.com had detailed serious vulnerabilities in the uninstaller for the DRM software made by SunnComm (called MediaMax). The companies say an effort will be made to contact the 223 users who had downloaded the uninstaller for the MediaMax software.


This is very good, the buyback/swap info today and now 1 of the uninstallers has been pulled from the web, attempts are being made to contact the downloaders. As of yet, I don’t know that the XCP uninstaller is available again. I suspect since the XCP uninstaller was the one recommended to remove the controversial XCP rootkit, there are a few more than 223 users who had downloaded THAT one.

Also, Freedom-to-tinker is working with Sony to review the NEW uninstaller for MediaMax before it’s made publicly available. (Maybe the XCP uninstaller too?)
