§ An exercise in futility

News is already spreading about DRM installed by copy protected CDs from Sony that install drivers into Windows that attempt to stealth themselves in manners similar to those used by rootkits. Now, I think just about everything I'd want to say about this has already been said, except I couldn't help but be quite amused at the thought of a device driver trying to hide itself on the machine of the guy who wrote RegMon, FileMon, DiskMon, Process Explorer, and NTFS for Windows 98, does professional consulting on kernel-mode development, and probably debugs kernel minidumps during breakfast. Whoever wrote that "DRM" software must be having a bad day, because that must have been the absolute worst machine for that software to land on, and now the author of some of the most powerful IT tools for Windows is very pissed off.

Incidentally, browsing through his past blog posts, I found that at least as of April, Mark Russinovich was still using Visual C++ 6.0, too (MSDEV.EXE). Very interesting.

Wow. I've just read his blog. I fully agree to his last statement:
It's OK to protect the media from unlawfull reproduction, but what
they did is past all good and evil...

Haha, he didn't have anything good to say about his programming skill either.

VS6, I always thought the interface has less clutter than VS2003; I still think it's good for C++ programming, but not VB or C# (obviously :-).

Sony BMG has released an "uninstaller" for it.

I'm still using VC++ 6.0 as well (when I'm not using gcc). I haven't seen any compelling reason to upgrade, and have seen plenty of reasons not to.

We are a small army. But the VC6 using bunch still exist. I don't have too much against VC 2003 & higher apart from that you need to raise the resolution to at least 1280x1024 to be able to use the interface easily.

VS6? Well, if it ain't broke and you've got more important stuff to be getting on with...

Simon - 11 11 05 - 18:25


How do you explain that instead of uninstalling that "DRMed" rootkit, it installs new versions of the same files and adds MORE? It only removes the cloaking, because it has caused major backlash. pirates already used that stuff to hide their stuff to users, antiviruses and firewalls...
