Works well, free, uses ssh and VNC and one time hashes that you'll exchange over the phone. Really quite easy to use, and IIRC its a standalone app that doesn't actually install anything so once you're done there's no port listening afterward to allow anyone an easy attack vector.

I'm really missing the point of this idea/app.
that Sony should probably be held to a higher standard because they should know better?

What do I do if I am arrested?
If you are arrested, submit to the law enforcement officer. Do not resist, even if you are innocent. Your innocence does not make the arrest illegal as long as the officer has conformed to the requirements of a legal arrest. If you resist, even if you are innocent of the charges for which you are arrested, you could be charged with resisting arrest. If the officer does not conform to the requirements of a legal arrest, you should still allow yourself to be taken into custody without resistance. If this happens, you may be entitled to bring an action against the law enforcement officer for false arrest.
I'm sure there's some legal jujitsu to get around it, but I'm just sayin'....
