Can you say, "Law of unintended consequences?"

The news that Sony was stopping their employment anti-priacy CDs made me happy. Happier still since it seems to cause problems with viruses...
The move came after security firms said hackers were exploiting the software to hide their creations.

The software has been used by viruses to evade detection by anti-virus programs and infect computers.

Sony said it had a right to stop people illegally copying music, but added that the halt was precautionary.

"We also intend to re-examine all aspects of our content protection initiative to be sure that it continues to meet our goals of security and ease of consumer use," the company said in a statement.
That's right. You wouldn't want the next Bruce Springsteen to make your computer explode, no would you?
