Sony Mallware… Story Continues

Ya, I’m still grumbling about the Sony bullshit 😛 I’m sick of it, but no matter what I do I just can’t get away from the Sony discussion. So fuck it…

Here is a nice comparison between the Sony’s MediaMax and XPC. Very informative.

We all know the xpc DRM is evil. However, ladies and gentlemen you you should also know that in addition to be highly destructive, it is also very easy to break. It turns out that the dreaded XPC rootkit can be defeated using a piece of scotch tape. Yup, the evil, computer breaking rootkit can be stopped if you stick some tape to the edges of your CD. Brilliant!

This is a great example of how low-tech methods can be used to solve complex high level problems.
