Sony CD's, part III

"The update is more than 3.5 megabytes in size, and it appears to contain new versions of almost all the files included in the initial installation of the entire DRM system, as well as creating some new files. In short, they're not just taking away the rootkit-like function - they're almost certainly adding things to the system as well. And once again, they're not disclosing what they're doing."

Continuation of the two posts below.

Latest news - it has been discovered the software connects to Sony with an ID number of the CD. And Sony lied about it on NPR.
