District Court Halts Keylogger Spyware Sales

The U.S. District Court has issued a restraining order temporarily halting the sale RemoteSpy keylogger spyware at the request of the Federal Trade Commission. According to the complaint, the software violates the FTC Act and unfairly collects and stores personal information.

The U.S. District Court court order, sustaining an action brought by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), said, “consumers throughout the United States have likely suffered and will likely continue to suffer substantial injury, including monetary loss, as a result of Defendants' unlawful acts or practices. In addition, Defendants have been unjustly enriched as a result of their unlawful practices.”
