The security vulnerability was discovered by online civil liberty group Electronic Frontier Foundation and brought to the attention of Sony BMG, which has been under fire in recent weeks over security issues with an unrelated CD copy-protection plan.
The MediaMax software maker, SunnComm Technologies Inc., has now released a patch to fix the security problems, which Sony BMG is urging all customers to download and apply.
"It's a security vulnerability and therefore needs to be dealt with," said Thomas Hesse, president of Global Digital Business for Sony BMG.
