Spyware maker faces legal battle over alleged affair
A spyware company faces legal action after a US court ruled that its software was used unlawfully to intercept an unwitting man’s messages.
Javier Luis started an online friendship with Catherine Zang in 2009.
Her husband used WebWatcher spyware to track the pair’s private emails and online chats over several months, as evidence for divorce proceedings. The US appeal court has now ruled 2-1 that Mr Luis can sue the software firm Awareness Technologies.
