Shift key bypass

Wonder why SunnComm decided not to sue the Princeton student for "discovering" that the autorun security could be bypassed by holding down the shift key?

Could it be that Microsoft lists it as a feature? (Look at the last shortcut before the first table.)

SunnComm would not only have to sue the Princeton student, they'd have to sue Microsoft for engineering the workaround for SunnComm's security device.

D'oh!

Odd that SunnComm stated that they didn't want to be the one to stiffle research. Some research.
