Following the link to F-Secure, I found out that two "Trojans," or xcp.sony.rootkit (crap) was actually installed from two of my CD's. Look at the top CD on the F-Secure site; currently, this artists newest CD (3rd installation) does not support this software.
Bellsouth internet security defines this as a trojan horse/spyware/and a rootkit. This is troubling. I'm straight up tired of seeing it in my list of "problems"
Does the EULA agreement even say, "Hey buddy, listen, we are installing secret software."? I hate having stuff I don't know about, and seeing it defines as a Trojan Horse sickens me.
Technically, it shouldn't pose a problem. But a very useful link on the problem can be found at:
Pest... Ha... It really is a pest.
IF a hacker wanted to, they suggest that this software could be used to support their little intrusion. Once again: Troubling.
Oh well... Just another one of a million programs installed on our accounts that we don't know about...
Sony, as a company, needs to create "legal" uninstall software. Manually deleting this program can render some of your devices useless and leaves you open to even more attacks.
For those that read this comment, please visit the above link to find out more about this subject. If your not already alarmed, this will open your eyes even more.
Would you knowingly install a Trojan?
