Schneier on the Sony Rootkit

The story to pay attention to here is the collusion between big media companies who try to control what we do on our computers and computer-security companies who are supposed to be protecting us.

Real Story of the Rogue Rootkit by Bruce Schneier.

Mr. Schneier points out bad this Sony thing really is. Sony was distributing the CDs that installed the rootkit since 2004. I didn’t know that. Since the rootkit revalation, the industry has been strangely quiet. If the rootkit were the work of an individual, I’m pretty certain that person would be hauled up on charges.

I got another post about this in the works but M. needs to send an email. Stay tuned.
