StarForce has been checked. No root-kits found.
The international IT community will not quickly forget the incident with Sony BMG at the end of 2005. The root-kits discovered in music CDs’ copy protection forced Sony to call back millions of discs and suffer serious losses.
Mark Russinovich was the main character of the story. It was him who one day discovered the root-kits and woke up famous the next morning.
After examination of copy-protection installed by StarForce Mark came to the conclusion that StarForce protection contains zero root-kits or malwares. While the fact that StarForce drivers have to be sometimes uninstalled separately from the protected application is a bit annoying, it is not the StarForce’s responsibility, but the developer’s.
This conclusion together with the online contest again show that accusations about StarForce protection damaging PCs or operation systems have absolutely no ground.
