Cashing in On Rootkit
2006 March 16 by Josh
Hey hey! Been a while since a rootkit post. Looks like its time for all of us who purchased malware last year from Sony BMG to cash in. Behold: The Sony BMG Rootkit Settlement. Oooooooh... If you, or someone you know purchased any of these CDs last year, you're eligible for a replacement CD as well as one of the following:
1) $7.50 cash plus one free iTunes album download
- or -
2) Three free iTunes album downloads
Yes folks, it's time to cash in. Personally, I'm opting to go with the "three album downloads from iTunes" just to force Sony to give me something via the iTunes Music Store. How's that for poetic justice? However, if you opt to go with the cash, just remember that we still have I Heart Rootkit t-shirts on sale.
So, what is Sony going to send you?
