Rootkit distributed by SONY
If you run a 32-bit OS, don’t play copy protected music from SONY on your PC.
If you run 64-bit Windows XP or 64-bit Windows Server 2003, you are more likely to be safe.
SONY distributes a rootkit!
You might allready have a rootkit (colllection of hidden programs) on your PC that is eating up your CPU cycles if you have played a copy-protected CD from SONY.
If the system of the free market does not adjust this kind of behavior, I will study economics and go into politics!
This shows that it is important to have technical competent advisors high up in the large enterprises, I for one reacted impulsively to this as decision-making without knowing the technology you rely on. SONY should never have taken this risk, it is overly aggressive. It will no doupt be a costly mistake.
