It’s been a while since we heard much about the infamous Sony BMG rootkit fiasco. However, with three virus writers getting arrested this weekend, Jeremy Wagstaff is pointing out that the virus they’re accused of writing made use of the rootkit vulnerability to infect thousands of computers. This was the virus that showed up just days after Sony insisted that no one should care about the Sony BMG rootkits because most people had no clue what rootkits were.
