Sony/BMG admits more of its music CDs cause Windows security holes

Sony BMG and EFF announced here that their security software (Digital Rights Managment, DRM), produced by Sunncomm, can cause security holes with Windows when you play their music CDs on your computer.
This comes hot on the heels of a number of lawsuits against Sony after using XCP, a music CD DRM solution from a British company (whose website is looking remarkably sparse now) was also found to do the same thing.
