SunnComm Patches Flaw in Its Sony Software


SunnComm Technologies, a company whose software was bundled with several million Sony BMG music CDs in a bid to keep them from being duplicated, has issued a software update to fix a security hole in its products through which computer viruses and attackers could slip to take control over machines running the program.

Last month, security researchers discovered that anti-piracy software installed by at least 52 Sony BMG music CD titles contained security flaws that could let attackers infiltrate computers running the software, which was installed automatically when users inserted the CDs into their Windows PCs.
