Yahoo hit with second spyware click fraud suit


Another website filed a class action suit against Yahoo Thursday, adding a second filing to the original submitted on Monday that accused the portal of using spyware to distribute ads.

Like Monday's class-action lawsuit, the most recent pits a website - in this case the online dating service Metrodate.com - against Yahoo, its Overture advertising network, and unspecified third party affiliates. The charges filed by Metrodate in a California federal court were nearly identical to those offered up by New Jersey-based Crafts by Veronica.
