Not keeping up with the media blitz on this one? ;-)

Insofar as [just] yesterday's RootkitGate media blitz,
let's review:

[1] Hackers use Sony DRM software to hide Trojan


[2] Sophos develops Sony DRM removal tool


[3] California Sues Sony over DRM Rootkit


[4] EFF: Want to particpate in Sony lawsuit?


[5] Sony DRM CDs infect Macs, too

I would dearly love to see large groups of affected parties join a 
separate class-action lawsuit against Sony, BMG, and First4 for their 
roles in a whole new round of rootkit-enabled worms.
