Spybot Search & Destroy Bows To No One!!

Safer Networking's Spybot Search & Destroy was recently served a Cease and Desist (C&D) letter. Actually, it was more than a C&D. Instead of working with Safer Networking to stop the trojan being installed with their software (or Oska's affiliates), via their attorney, Oska Educational Systems Pty Limited are suing for damages to their reputation done by the trojan. In addition,
"They also asked us to no longer detect their software even if installed without user consent by this trojan horse, to post a public apology in this place after removing any other reference to their name, delete any correspondence from and to Spybot-S&D users who had been this trojan, stop helping further Spybot-S&D users that get infected with this trojan."
