CyberSpy Software, which markets a key logger programmer that claims to be a “100 per cent undetectable” application allowing users to “Spy on Anyone. From Anywhere,” has agreed to rewrite its software following a case brought by the Federal Trade Commission.
The key logging program, known as RemoteSpy, is capable of logging chat conversations, website history, keystrokes and documents opened. CyberSpy even provided users with instructions on how to disguise the program as an innocuous application or as a fake picture in an email attachment.
Following the lawsuit, CyberSpy is no longer allowed to provide users with information on how to disguise the software. Also, a district court in Florida has ordered CyberSpy to inform any possible buyers that misuse of the technology could violate wiretapping laws.
