Zone Labs sued over spyware classification


Marketing company 180solutions filed a lawsuit against desktop-security firm Zone Labs taking issue with a warning generated by the security firm's personal firewall software, which labels 180solutions advertising client as spyware.

The lawsuit--filed last month but only recently came to light--cites warnings generated by Zone Labs' ZoneAlarm personal firewall product that warns of "dangerous behavior," recommending that users remove 180solutions software from the computer system. The marketing firm is a controversial company that was sued in September for installing what many have called "spyware" on consumers' computers. Over the past year, 180solutions has attempted to clean up its image and now enforces rigorous rules on its affiliates and has added safeguards into its software.
