It has recently come to our attention that some individuals and companies are offering various instructions and tools to uninstall the XCP content protection software from computers. Please be advised that we have already made available a proper uninstaller at http://cp.sonybmg.com/xcp/english/updates.html. This is the only safe and secure method for removing the protection components of which SONY BMG is aware. SONY BMG assumes no responsibility for use of any other uninstaller tool or instructions.

For any questions about XCP content protection software used on SONY BMG discs please go to http://cp.sonybmg.com/xcp/english/home.html.

Thank you.

SONY BMG

When was this uninstaller released to the general public in an easy to find manner? I know previously people had to jump through hoops to get the installer or install the exploitable ActiveX control.

Was this uninstaller made formally public recently?
