Sony has been releasing music CDs infected with a rootkit hack that hooks into your OS calls and makes Windows LIE about the contents of your hard drive. Any file put on your machine whose name begins with $sys$ will be completely invisible. Obviously this is a great big giant hole for hackers to park anything they want to on your machine. To make things even worse, they then upload your listening habits to their website surreptitiosly, along with your IP address. So, first they corrupt your Windows OS, then they basically ADVERTISE it on the open internet!!!
I'm mad as hell that any music company would think they have a right to underhandedly modify my computers operating system. The same OS that protects my financial data and other stuff as irreplaceable as my family's history (photos, video, audio), diablo characters, and my vast hoard of pr0n. I hope Sony pays dearly for this lack of respect for its customers.
I wrote this note and submitted it to Sony music, just now:
As a once loyal Sony customer, I find your devious XCP windows hack totally reprehensible. You have no right to comandeer my computer's operating system. To do so is as unethical as the behavior its (poorly) designed to prevent. Do not hack my machine and then start sending my personal data (along with my ip address - how convenient for the hackers) to your company's database.
I will not buy, and my family will not buy, and as many friends as I can convince will not buy Sony products until you recall all of the XCP rootkit infected CDs and make a public apology for this greivous example of bad judgement.
disgusted at your lack of respect,
<My name here>
