Sony have introduced a new copy protection system on some of their CDs. It installs a root file without your permission and without you knowing! Its a long read but in short....

Guy buys Sony music CD...
Guy plays it in PC...
Guy wonders where this new service has come from thats consuming 1-2% of his CPU.
Guy does digging and finds the Sony CD on insertion installed software without him knowing...
Guy tries to remove software and loses CDROM...

Well done Sony... Alienate the last of the honest customers who actually purchase their music.
