Sony Spyware

Earlier this week, the State of Texas filed a lawsuit against Sony BMG Music Entertainment over hidden spyware> that was included on recently realeased CDs.
"Sony has engaged in a technological version of cloak and dagger deceit against consumers by hiding secret files on their computers," said [Texas Attorney-General Greg] Abbott. "Consumers who purchased a Sony CD thought they were buying music. Instead, they received spyware that can damage a computer, subject it to viruses and expose the consumer to possible identity crime."
