Sony To Pay You $150 For CD Rootkit Scandal

Remember that Sony Rootkit DRM Scandal a little while back? The one that boned your computer with a rootkit when you put in a CD with Sony's DRM on it? Well, Sony's just agreed to pay out $150 to customers to "repair damage done" when they tried to remove the rootkit.


Also, they need to provide an uninstall tool and patches to repair any damage done by their rootkit and display it on their website. Sounds good to us.

We'll update you with the details when you can sign up to get your $150.
