Vista DRM could hide malware

ZDNet UK
Tom Espiner

A security researcher has released a proof-of-concept program that hackers could use to exploit Windows Vista digital rights management processes to hide malware.

Alex Ionescu claims to have developed the program — D-Pin Purr v1.0 — that will arbitrarily enable and disable protected processes in Vista, Microsoft's latest operating system.

Comes as no big surprise. We've already been here with Sony BMG and the DRM fiasco.

Don't even get us started again on the Sony BGM.

What i'm more 'surprised' at is that this tool can't pnly be used to hide malware, it's likely to become a pirates favourite, allowing them to replace the "special" processes with versions that don't nag.
