Irish software company protests 'trackware' label

An Irish company’s software has been mistakenly classified as trackware in the latest gaffe by anti-virus software makers that has seen legitimate software applications unfairly tagged as being a security risk.

Last week PixAlert discovered that one of its products had been identified as trackware by Symantec, one of the world’s largest anti-virus vendors. Ironically, the Dublin-based company’s product involved in this case, SafeScreen, is security software designed to help parents prevent their children from viewing inappropriate images on their computers.
