Sony executive responds – Be insulted

Ars is reporting that Sony has responded to this issue of them hacking Windows user’s kernels for their CD DRM.

You really should be insulted, infuriated and amused. Sony needs a clue, the industry needs a clue. Look at this quote from Thomas Hesse, President of Sony BMG’s global digital business division:

“Most people, I think, don’t even know what a rootkit is, so why should they care about it,” he asked? “The software is designed to protect our CDs from unauthorized copying, ripping.”

Wow. Utterly wow.
