Sony DRM debacle update

A new vulnerability, in Sony’s other copy-protection software, has been found. Sony’s vendor Suncomm has already issued a patch.

Meanwhile Sony has also issued an update and (finally!) removal of the XCP rootkit. Without needing to jump through hoops, this time.

    Sony are officially on my Do Not Buy list for at least a couple of years over this. Not only the action, but the cavalier
    way in which they tried to brush it off as unimportant. And as a wise Slashdotter said, if a spotty virus writing nerd had
    been caught doing this to people’s PC with a virus or malicious ActiveX through the net, the authorities would’ve crushed
    him like a bug. But Sony? Nah, no criminal charges, no public telling off, not even a lousy fine. It’s OK if you’re a massive
    corporation, it seems.
