I'd love to write about something else, but this story keeps going and going and going. Now we have reports that Sony's malware has opened consumers' (yes, customers, people who actually bought their CDs) computers to other malware.

The EFF lists all of the root kit DRMed Sony BMG titles it can identify and tells you how to spot 'em.

Being caught sneaking into consumers' computers with its malware DRM may have just been the beginning of Sony BMG's problems. Paradoxiically, getting rid of it may put consumers afoul of the DMRC.
