More Malware From Sony

Malware, short for malicious software, (sometimes referred to as pestware[1]) is a software designed to secretly access a computer system without the owner’s informed consent.”

That’s what Sony has put into their latest update of PlayStation 3. 3.56 is reported to contain a rootkit permitting running software on the Playstation without the owner’s consent. That’s Malware and Sony should smarten up. They are already in court over the removal of “Other OS” capability and have a judge on their side to clean up the Internet for blocking the return of “Other OS”.

I am not a business man but I certainly know a business is in trouble when they get sued by customers in large numbers. What’s with that? Do they have suicidal impulses? What have Sony got against customers using the product as intended?
