Blackhats Use DRM To Plant Massive Amounts Of Spyware

And you wonder why I don’t use Windows media player and live with the DRM crap.

When a user tries to play a protected Windows media file, the anti-piracy technology demands a valid license; if that license is not stored locally, the player looks for it on the Internet so the user can download or purchase it.

‘I pressed ‘Yes’ once to allow the installation. My computer quickly became contaminated with the most spyware programs I have ever received in a single sitting…all told, the infection added 58 folders, 786 files, and an incredible 11,915 registry entries to my computer.’
