Sony exposes McAfee, Symantec & MS

So.. the story grows.

Seems that these rootkit installing VIRUSES that Sony has sold to about 2 million people have been know of by the security companies like McAfee and Symantec for a YEAR. Did they do anything?

No.

Now that they know about it are they owning up to the fact that they didn't do enough (and still aren't)?

No.

Only F-Secure (of the bigger virus/computer security companies) was vocal about this and did something fast (and completely).

So, I'm switching all my computers to F Secure.

Read this story at wired: http://www.wired.com/news/privacy/0,1848,69601,00.html

It tells how the big guys pretty much ignored (and still kind of are) the crap Sony is putting out into the world.

I'm extending my personal boycott to any security and virus software from Symantec, McAfee and MicroSoft. You should too.
