Hi All, Apparently Sony cannot learn from their past and have introduced another rootkit with another of their devices. This time it is their Microvault USB drive that has fingerprint security. Have a read of http://hiltont.blogspot.com/2007/08/sony-rootkit-version-2.html for my "WHAT!?!?!? You're kidding?" on it and also http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/archive-082007.html#00001263 for the original report from F-Secure. -- Regards, Hilton Travis Phone: +61 (0)7 3344 3889 (Brisbane, Australia) Phone: +61 (0)419 792 394 Manager, Quark IT http://www.quarkit.com.au Quark AudioVisual http://www.quarkav.net War doesn't determine who is right.
