Here is a post from Shamus Young about SecuROM. But I’m linking it because of the comments.

It will reply to spam messages on your behalf, post naked photographs of you on youtube, and declare war on a random oil-producing country.
It will sign you up to Reader’s Digest.
It will convert all your MP3s to Britney Spears albums, and then inform the RIAA that you’re filesharing them.
It will cause Ragnarok.
