Sony rootkit is evil

12th Nov 2005

If you have bought any music CD's from Sony recently and tried to play the CD on your computer, it's likely you may have unwittingly installed some nasty software know as a rootkit. What is a rootkit?. Basically, it's copy protection. Sony don't want you breaking their copyrights and ripping off their artists... which is fair enough; but if this idea sounds tough, check out the legal claptrap they apply to each sale. Just ridiculous! This could possibly have an adverse effect on sales.
