There is a DRM software that is installed as part of many computer games. The list
is long and includes MANY popular games.
The software is called Starforce and it intended to prevent copying of the game you purchased. However, it has the side effects of causing DAMAGE, yes, physical damage, to your computer. Experiencing any CDROM performance issues?
See the post
on Boingboing or the original post
A few of the games that will infect you:
Cossacks II: Napoleonic Wars,
Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones,
Singles 2: Triple Trouble,
Singles: Flirt Up Your Life,
Splinter Cell 3: Chaos Theory,
And the list
goes on and on...
And nope, the EULA doesn't mention this DRM stuff. It is installed without notice or permission.
