Friends Don’t Let Friends Install Rootkits

Malbela: RIAA President to stop downloading, save the empire: Maybe we’ve got this whole thing wrong about Sony. Are they just another “responsible” company caught in some crossfire?

In an online press conference, the President of the RIAA Cary Sherman recently came out with a defense of Sony and their DRM root kit justifying their actions as they were “unaware that the software contained a security vulnerability.”

“RIAA President Cary Sherman: “The problem with the SonyBMG situation is that the technology they used contained a security vulnerability of which they were unaware. They have apologized for their mistake, ceased manufacture of CDs with that technology,and pulled CDs with that technology from store shelves. Seems very responsible to me.”

Oh, ok guy, let me know when you’re ready to take your head out of your ass.

Apparently the state of Texas ain’t buying what you’re selling.

and here’s another beauty:

“It’s a common misconception that when people spend $15 on a CD, they’re simply paying ultra-rich megastars and big record labels.”

Oh wait a minute, I get what’s going on here. SonyBMG pays your salary. Ahhhhhh ok.

  1. I can translate Sherman’s statement into normal talk: “Well, we knew there were vulnerabilities, but we figured, ‘Screw the customer’s computer! The only reason he’s putting the CD into his computer in the first place is to rip us off!’ and also that nobody would ever find us out. Sorry.”
