    Sony vs Microsoft... Resistance is Futile

    Stardate 4863.3

    Recently, Sony has introduced some form of software on their music CDs so that when you play them or record them (not really sure here) on your PC, they install software that doesn't allow you to copy the content. From their point of view, this seems to be a good idea, but of course, they have opened up a lot of issues now with hackers.

    It would seem that Microsoft is saying "NO" to Sony and their copy protection software, as hackers use it now as a backdoor into people's computers and business networks. It has been classified as Malware by Microsoft, and will be dealt with handily by the updates Malicious Software Removal Tool.

    Seems almost too good to be true... Microsoft siding with the little guys for a change :)


    It seems the patch released by Sony only makes things worse... Who needs neil Diamond anyhow LOL... I can't believe they are afraid of Neil Diamond piracy heh.
