180Solutions Finds Itself On The Other End Of A Lawsuit

from the can-the-surreptitiously-install-the-charges? dept

180Solutions, the adware company with a terrible reputation, keeps claiming that its cleaning up its act, though many have doubts. One move they've made is to start suing some "rogue" distributors (though, they've rewarded others). Well, it seems that 180Solutions' lawyers may be busy in the other direction now, as some "users" (tough to call them that) are filing a class action lawsuit on behalf of everyone who ever got stuck with one of 180Solutions products without knowing about it. There are a bunch of charges, including computer fraud and violating wiretap laws.
