Trying to use EULAs and copyright law to block spyware research


RetroCoder makes a commercial keylogger called SpyMon, something that someone would normally buy on purpose. But just in case, itís in our threat database and we treat it like we treat all commercial keyloggers ó we tell the user itís on the system, make the default action ďIgnoreĒ and let the user decide whether or not to remove it.

But they donít like the fact that we list it. And so they sent us this little gem through our standard submission form Sunbelt BLOG: Trying to use EULAs and copyright law to block spyware research
