BoingBoing.net has been documenting stuff about the malicious trojan-horse rootkit that is sneakily installed on your PC when you try to play a Sony BMG CD. Apparently something like 500,000 computer networks worldwide are infected. The Sony uninstaller released to fix the rootkit problem is even worse and further compromises computer security.
A recent update on boingboing features a letter to all UC staff and students from Professor Andrew Cheetham (Pro Vice-Chancellor – Research & Information Management University of Canberra) banning the use of Sony CDs on uni computers.
Anyone from UC heard anything official?
