OK, so I'm enough of a geek ...

This whole SONY thing is getting freaky ... posts tonight by agtiger (on why SONY's uninstaller is worse than the rootkit) and cryo (on how widespread the problem is, but with various comments on how to test for the rootkit) are worth a read.

The thing I wanted to pass along was this:
$sys$readme.txt
... it seems that if you save a file in that format, and it disappears then you likely have the SONY rootkit masking things on your system ... which seems to be a fairly easy way to check if this is a problem!
