Sony’s Rootkit

It’s been a very interesting week for Sony, BMG and the internet in general. If you havn’t been following the story of how certain Sony CDs install a rootkit on your computer, go catch up. It’s pretty frightening.

More frightening has been Sony’s response to the situation. I can
understand that they want to protect their works, but the method in
which they’ve gone about it leaves much to be desired.

Update: The EFF has an interesting piece on the EULA that comes with the SONY-BMG compact discs. What a nightmare.
