Sony Spyware pt. 2

On Tuesday I wrote about Sony's new copy protection scheme that is nothing more than spyware.

Now, Sony's spyware, which has the ability to hide itself, is being used by several different trojan horse viruses to infiltrate the user's computer.

This move by Sony had not only intruded on their customers privacy but now is making them vulnerable to attack from other outside sources.

At least one lawsuit has been filed against Sony for this practice. I expect that there will be others.

I won't be one of them. As I said on tuesday I will never again purchase a product made by Sony.
