Sony & North Korea: Dumb & Dumber

For those of you with short memories, back between 2005 and 2007, Sony didn’t want us playing their CDs on our computers, fearing we might rip-and-burn, so they surreptitiously used their CDs to install DRM software on our computers, which ended up making our machines vulnerable to all sorts of malicious attacks. Their solution to that brouhaha was to release an ???uninstaller,??? which didn’t uninstall anything and actually installed more exploitable software while collecting email addresses to send back to Sony’s home office.
