Sony XCP Rootkit Saga Continues

I didn't follow this disaster too closely, but here's a short (most probably incomplete) roundup of what happened so far:

  1. The Sony DRM installs a rootkit,
  2. people use the rootkit to make game cheats safe from the (Blizzard) Warden,
  3. trojans start (ab)using the DRM rootkit,
  4. Sony gets sued,
  5. Sony pulls the rootkit.

Nice bedtime story so far. Now it turns out that Sony’s web-based XCP (rootkit) uninstaller seems to open huge, gaping security holes itself...

Not that I would care too much, I don't buy any Sony CDs. There's a huge pile of great Creative Commons licensed music out there (shameless plug: check my music podcast for some hand-selected goodies). No need to pay huge corporations for crappy music which comes with funny "extras"...

Trading a paperclip for a house

Bored? Find yourself a paper clip and trade it for bigger things until you get a house.

This Internet thingy is... interesting at times.

smashmyipod.com - You donate, we smash! [Update]

This has got to be the funniest cause someone has ever requested donations for:

After we collect $400 in donations, we will take that money to a local Apple Store. We will purchase the iPod, open it right inside the store, and destroy it right on the spot. The whole thing will be shot on film, and displayed on this site. This is only a social experiment, for the entertainment of the donors, and visitors of this site.

The $400 are raised, so expect the video anytime soon...

Update: The video is now available.
