Will Sony BMG's Rootkit Be The Most Popular Malware This Month?
from the please,-make-it-stop dept
We'd absolutely love for the Sony BMG / First4Internet story to die (a painful death) already, because it seems like it's taken up too much talk time already -- but something about it refuses to give up. The latest is that security researcher, Dan Kaminsky, has been trying to see how widespread the rootkit was spread and discovered evidence that an awful lot of computers are exposed and at risk of being infected by malware that takes advantage of the promiscuous nature of the rootkit. So, will the rootkit make it to the tops of those lists the virus companies love to put out each month detailing the biggest problems? Will Sony BMG and First4Internet still refuse to apologize and say there's no risk at all?
