Sony BMG is being sued because of the software that is on their music cds. It silently installs on your pc and records data about you. Their is a flaw with this and virus writers have taken advanatage of this.
Sony was told to remove the CDs from retailers but still has not yet completed the reccall. The company said it would remove all of those affected (SN reported).
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said: "Sony has engaged in a technological version of cloak-and-dagger deceit against consumers by hiding secret files on their computers." Source
