Sony recalls risky ‘rootkit’ CDs
“Record label Sony BMG Music Entertainment said Tuesday that it will recall millions of CDs that, if played in a consumer’s PC disc drive, will expose the computer to serious security risks.”…
…”Half a million people at risk?

Gee, I wonder if there will be a class-action lawsuit?
Just another reason to buy a Mac.
