Macrovision plugs gaping hole in DRM software

Macrovision has shipped a fix for a gaping hole in its SafeDisc (secdrv.sys) copy protection software, belatedly blocking an in-the-wild malware attack.

The Macrovision patch (.zip file) comes a full 20 days after researchers at Symantec spotted a zero-day attack exploiting this vulnerability.

Macrovision protection on what? DVDs or something?

It's for software (games, specifically).
