Default Macrovision plugs gaping hole in DRM software

Quote:
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.

It's for software (games, specifically).

Oh.

Since I don't have many recent games, I've never come across anything like that.
