View Full Version : Boycott Sony

Looks like Sony is behind yet another rootkit scandal (http://www.computerworlduk.com/management/security/data-control/news/index.cfm?newsid=4860). I would take this to mean that they didnít take the previous one very seriously.
Seems you cannot trust Sony these days with anything that might interact with your computer.

this doesn't sound like a good idea, outsourcing your code-writing to other countries with whom relations are strained at best, and then not checking carefully...
"This isn't the same code, recycled," said Mikko Hypponen, F-Secure's chief research officer. "Sony doesn't do any of its own development in this area; it looks like a Chinese company did it. But the similarities lie in the fact that, like the Sony BMG rootkit, this software uses a hidden folder and hides files in it."
