Sony promises to try harder



August 31st, 2007

After yet another rootkit debacle, Sony makes a promise to F-Secure to do better:

Sony Electronics phoned us today. They wanted to thank us for bringing the Microvault incident to their attention, and they also wanted to apologize for not responding to our earlier queries regarding the incident.

We have now opened direct discussion channels with Sony Electronics and are assisting them with the investigation. We have also provided them with our internal investigation notes on the case.

We were also promised a direct contact point for future. Just in case we would again discover a rootkit or something in Sony's products. After all, we have already done it twice...

All this begs the question - how many more Sony rootkits are left to discover?
