My First Sony virus

Filed under: Music — Tom @ 11:16 pm

Only a little more than a week and a half after the news broke of Sony’s evil little “rootkit” app that compromised the security of computers on which copy-protected CDs were played, and we have, you guessed it, reports of the first viruses spreading that were written to take advantage of that security breach. Sony, you in deep trouble – class action lawsuits are already in the works. This, I think, would qualify as “karma” in action – bad karma for Sony, but richly rewarding to those of us watching from the sidelines, especially those of us who make an effort to buy CDs to support the artists – you know, “do the right thing.” Maybe Sony would like to take some notes on that subject now?
