Florida Judge Lowers |The Boom On CyberSpy

(CN) - A federal judge in Orlando ordered CyberSpy to stop selling its "keylogger" software, which spies remotely on computers. The program installs itself in victims' computers if they open a deceptively titled email. CyberSpy bragged in ads that the program could "Spy on Anyone. From Anywhere."

The FTC demands disgorgement and a permanent injunction. It also sued Tracer R. Spence, the manager of the Orlando-based company.

Courthouse News first reported the case when the FTC filed it in Federal Court, on Nov. 5.
