Wired article on “Real Story of the Rogue Rootkit”

November 20, 2005
I4U News has a pointer to this Wired article about the Sony Rootkit DRM debacle. The article goes into quite a lot of facts that build up a discussion around the supposed collusion of SOMY BMG & Anti-virus companies.
 
This Wired article is a great read for those who want to understand the whole story around the technology in question and the events that have transpired because of its use.
 
Having been a victim of stupid CD copyright systems in the past, what Sony has done seems to be flat out criminal. I therefore will be supporting the boycott against Sony, by not purchasing any of their CDs, electronic equipment or peripherals.
