The Sony BMG rootkit appearing in linux kernel-documentations

It's good to see that stuff like the rootkit of the latest Sony copy protection technologies [1] makes it into examples for explaining bleeding edge linux technology [2]. This way, open source not only helps creating technology awareness, but also makes privacy issues and trusted computing part of the deal. Anyway, we know that trusting trust [3] is a problem of its own anyway ;-)
