Court OKs AhnLab’s spyware criteria

The Southern District Court of Seoul ruled yesterday that an anti-spyware program by AhnLab Inc., a computer security firm, is not unfairly targeting another software company’s product. AhnLab Inc. said yesterday that the court rejected a software company’s petition, filed in April, to stop the distribution of “SpyZero,” which detects spyware, which are secret programs that display pop-up ads. The software company said AhnLab designed “SpyZero” to wrongly delete some of its product’s files. But the court said because the software firm’s program files automatically reinstall even after being erased, the program can be considered spyware.
