Sony--not done just yet

Wired reporter Bruce Schneier has this interesting piece on the Sony BMG music rootkit fiasco. It's interesting to see how long this thing was floating around out there before it was noticed and the major security software publishers lack of interest in updating their software to deal with it.

Given the cost of using Windows or a Mac, the security issues with Windows and the ever-increasing copy-protection crap on both platforms, open source is looking better all the time.
