"Sony's attempt at protecting its music cds from piracy has turned into a tale of security woes that has quickly gone from bad to worse. New software on several of the company's cds installs a copy protection rootkit on a user's PC once the license agreement on the disc is accepted. Virus writers jumped on the fact that Sony's rootkit hides itself on users' computers, and a few Trojan horses have been released that piggyback on the software, effectively hiding from antivirus software"

OK, I may be biased, but it is clear to me that anyone who has the ability to engage in "dark side" coding won't be needing the help of a bunch of DDK MVPs on NTDEV. The people that ask questions about doing illegal/immoral/wrong things on NTDEV often don't know what they're doing, and giving them hacks as solutions will destabilize all of our PCs (and jobs).

Giving a power tool to a child is never wise, regardless of what you happen to think about whether more mature engineers should be able to color outside the lines.

I agree with you steve, that the efforts of the MVPs are always to guide the community to write stable and reliable drivers & and also to keep them away from doing anything which will make the os unstable.

And someone who is trying to write a hack will find it one way or the another.

I was foolish when I thought nobody except my friends wud read this blog. I need to be more 'responsible'. I have removed those dark texts written without an afterthought.
