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."
