Texas sues Sony BMG for 'spyware' on CDs
The state of Texas sued Sony BMG, alleging that the company "surreptitiously" installed spyware on personal computers through music CDs with a copy protection program.

"Sony has engaged in a technological version of cloak and dagger deceit against consumers by hiding secret files on their computers," said Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott in a statement after suing under the state's anti-spyware law.

"Consumers who purchased a Sony CD thought they were buying music. Instead, they received spyware that can damage a computer, subject it to viruses and expose the consumer to possible identity crime." ...

The only way I know Sony can do this is for the music CD to also have a Joliet filesystem session on it with an Autorun.ini file. In which case, disable autorun for all questionable CDs (under My Computer, open the Properties popup menu on the CD drive).

Good for Texas! I am force to use Windows on occasion, such as dictation software, and when I get on the Internet, I get from 1 to 6 spyware infestations. I have had software put on spyware also.

I would suggest Windows users download the free programs SPYBOT and ADAWARE to help clean the gunk out of their computers. I wonder if these programs would work on the Sony spyware?
