Sorry Sony

Reactions: 
but the more you guys do this the less confidence we as consumers will have in your products...

"Sony's MicroVault USB memory stick and fingerprint reader includes software that creates a hidden directory on the computer's hard drive, researchers with Finnish security software maker F-Secure Corp reported on the company's blog on Monday.
Such software that hides itself, which is known as a root kit, leaves room for hackers to secretly infect personal computers, they said."

I used to like Sony products. They at one time had quality stuf. The old "Sony - no baloney" mantra actually carried some weight.

I will no longer buy ANY Sony product.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Hope you got a chuckle or two.

Thanks for popping in on one of mine... I have too many but it is part of my nature to have more than one pot on the boil. :-)
