This is good news. However, this rootkit incident has left a lingering sour taste in the mouths of many. Yesterday, a US Department of Homeland Security official cautioned rights holders against the kind of security risks that the Sony BMG rootkit created.
On a more personal note, I had the responsibility this week of researching and recommending the purchase of a camcorder. While I have no idea if a Sony camcorder would have done the job, Sony products were out of the running due to their reckless disregard for the security of their customer's computers. Some time will have to pass and a track record will have to be built before I will trust Sony again.
