Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:18 am

SunnComm Technologies, a company that provides copy-protection technology for some Sony BMG CDs, said Monday it had issued a patch for a serious security flaw in its uninstallation program.

The program was a Web-based utility designed to remove copy protection software installed by some Sony CDs. However, the uninstaller, which had been used by 223 people before being taken offline, according to SunnComm, also allowed other Web sites to use the program to run their own malicious code.
