All year long Sony has been selling CDs that secretly install software in usersí Microsoft Windows-based computers that not only restricts copying, but has the capacity to expose those computers to hackers and wreck components of the computers. The software also secretly sends information on the customerís computer to Sony. And itís designed to be invisible to all but the most sophisticated users. Numerous anti-virus and anti-spyware companies have declared the Sony program to be spyware or malware, and are sending clients patches allowing it to be deleted or disarmed. Microsoft has announced it will be sending Windows users an update to delete the program from Windows computers.
