Could Sony's DRM Uninstaller Make Matters Worse?

More bad news for Sony and their customers, as Sony's XCP uninstall software apparently suffers from the same problem as the DRM software its self... security flaws. Sony has announced they will pull all their XCP infected CDs from store shelves.

"The consequences of the flaw are severe," Felten and Halderman wrote in a blog posting Tuesday. "It allows any Web page you visit to download, install, and run any code it likes on your computer. Any Web page can seize control of your computer; then it can do anything it likes. That's about as serious as a security flaw can get."

What a week, eh? We'll keep you informed as the saga continues...
