    And in more legal battles (looks like the IT world is currently littered with them!) the Federal Trade Commission last week filed a legal complaint against two companies that were allegedly infecting computers with spyware and all that horrible stuff. These particular two companies are also alleged to have tried to sell spyware-blocking software to their victims. More here.
