I stumbled across this article today which explains how a computer spyware expert learned that Sony had planted a little stealth program onto his PC via a CD he bought published by Sony Music.
His explanation of how he found it was remarkably clear and simple for a civilian like myself. So, not only is the story notable simply for the revelation about Sony’s heinous actions (which are likely to get them sued) but it’s a good tech article as well.
It may be about time (again) to hose down my hard drive and spray it with bleach. As far as Sony’s spyware – I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.
