For those of you who recently bought a Sony-BMG manufactured CD, you should be aware of ongoing litigation against Sony.
When you buy a CD from Sony-BMG, and you want to play it in your computer, you are required to install a software program. Fine, except that the software program alerts Sony to your music listening habits and creates serious security risks for your computer. Oh, and you probably cannot uninstall the software. OOPS!
I installed this software before learning about this defect. There does not appear to be a way to ge the software off. And Sony’s first removal program? It actually made your computer more vulnerable to those who might want to harm your compuer.
Check your CD’s and if you have a Sony-BMG CD with this program on it, do not install it on your computer.
