Not Just a First4 Problem for Sony BMG [2:13 pm]
The security vulnerability on SunnComm MediaMax Version 5 software differs from that reported in early November on First4Internet XCP software contained on certain SONY BMG CDs. A full list of the 27 U.S. SunnComm MediaMax Version 5 titles is included in the link below. Consumers can download the software update that is designed to address this security vulnerability from SunnComm’s and Sony BMG’s websites at http://www.sunncomm.com/support/updates/update.asp and http://www.sonybmg.com/mediamax.
The security issue involves a file folder installed on users’ computers by the MediaMax software that could allow malicious third parties who have localized, lower-privilege access to gain control over a consumer’s computer running the Windows operating system.
