Sony uses up a few of MSLU's 15 minutes of fame

As reported by Mark Russinovich, there is more to the story on the Sony-installed Rootkit (perhaps the defenders of Sony from that first post will have second thoughts once they see the elaborate web that does in fact appear to be Sony's process!).

If you search in that post for unicows.dll you will see where some program named MediaJam that apparently installs MSLU even if you are not running on Win9x. So in addition to all of things that Mark has pointed out, they are also not even properly using the Micrsosoft Layer for Unicode on Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me Systems....
