any program has the same drawback, not just any securom games… did you actually read the article you linked to (theregister.co.uk one?) it explains how the exploit was done, it can be done on any system with the driver active, the fact that world of warcraft is securom protected is a moot point… So stating securom has the same drawback is somewhat inaccurate, securom != sony bmg, sure they’re owned by the same parent company but i think thats where the similarities stop
