Hackers Raid Sony's Playbook

Over the weekend, I was contacted by a Security Fix reader who spends a great deal of his time taking apart software applications to find security vulnerabilities (which he occasionally sells to security companies that use them to brag to their customers about how great their security products are, but that's another story altogether).

This young man told me that his current project revolves around the subject of the blog entry I posted last week regarding Sony BMG's anti-piracy program, which uses rootkit technology to hide its components from users and to defy removal from their PCs.
