With Sony/BMG installing rootkits, F-Secure was able to come up with F-Secure Blacklight (still in beta release). F-Secure Blacklight is a rootkit elimination technology. Primarily, it detects hidden objects (not visible to users and security tools) and it asks the user if he/she wants to remove them or not. The expiration of the beta release of F-Secure Blacklight has been moved to January 2006. The good news for F-Secure users is that the Blacklight Engine has been integrated to the F-Secure Internet Security 2006 suite. Check out the screenshots of F-Secure Blacklight here.
There are also other rootkit removers that are available (in short, there’s a price to pay) for download. For the ultra techie person, Rootkit Revealer is available for free download since you have to do an analysis of the output of the registry scan.
If you do not have access to these rootkit removers, just fill out this form provided by Sony BMG so that it will be uninstalled.
