Kris_J's Journal: No Sony rootkit on old-ish Sony laptop

Journal by Kris_J

I'll check my mother's VIAO the next time she brings it home and report back on my Slashdot Journal.

A 1.5 to 2 year old Sony VIAO laptop does not appear to have the rootkit pre-installed. It might have other Sony junk on it, but I think it's relatively clear of their insane IP-protection black-hat junk.
