Trojan horse exploits Sony DRM copy protection vulnerability
Sophos issues tool to detect and disable "cloaking" flaw exploited by Trojans

Experts at SophosLabs, Sophos's global network of virus and spam
analysis centres, have detected a new Trojan horse that exploits the
controversial Sony DRM (Digital Rights Management) copy protection
included on some of the music giant's CDs.

The Troj/Stinx-E Trojan horse appears to have been deliberately 
spammed out to email addresses, posing as a message from a British 
business magazine.
