Be Careful When You Click “OK” 2

I’ve been reading about rootkits on alt.comp.virus for several months now.

From NPR’s Morning Edition:

After an uproar that started on blogs, privacy and security experts are charging that the technology Sony BMG Music Entertainment has built into some of its music CDs is invasive and exposes users to threats from hackers and viruses.

More about rootkits.

    I can’t believe this. Yesterday I was listening to a podcast of Leo Laporte’s radio show and learned about rootkits for the first time, and I was going to write about them on my site but got too tired and ran out of time! I figured you probably knew about them but I was going to warn some others anyway.

    I’m not buying any Sony CD’s if I can help it.

    And I don’t do peer-to-peer.

    I’m a newsgroups kind of guy.
