02/26/2006 Entry: "Now, DVDs with rootkits"
Here we go again...maybe. F-Secure reports that the German DVD of "Mr. & Mrs. Smith" uses "rootkit-like features" for copy protection. That's a DVD, not an audio CD. The Finnish edition does not have the rootkit; no word yet on the North American editions. You'd think these people would learn from the Sony BMG debacle.
And I see, according to the eWeek coverage, that another deployer of rootkitlets is Symantec, publishers of Norton security software. (More here.) My dislike for this outfit keeps increasing. —brad
