Sonys DRM Rootkit Comes in Mac Flavor, Too
Opinion: Sony says it will discontinue distribution of its DRM software, which could pose a "rootkit" security threat to users. But does that include the OS X version? (Security IT Hub)Sony is reportedly pulling its digital rights management "rootkit" from the market. But it isnt reporting everything. "The Sony copy-protection software does not install itself on Macintosh computers or ordinary CD and DVD players," Reuters reported today. Theres just one problem with that statement: it happens to be flat-out wrong.
While the XCP version of copy protection is for Windows, there is another Mac-only version of copy protection installed by Sony/BMG CDs.
