Lawsuit Accuses Intel of Wiretapping


Recommended Posts

The cause of this class action lawsuit appears to be Intel websites. The lawsuit claims that Intel has been using recording technology to analyze mouse movement and even keystrokes. While analysis lodged by PC Gamer through Blacklight.com was able to find signs of mouse tracking, there was no evidence that the website was recording keystrokes. The case alleges that this information may have been shared with a third party.

The suit against Intel refers to Florida state law, which declares that “interception and disclosure of wire, oral, or electronic communications” is prohibited. The class action suit was brought forward to Florida court by Holly Londers, who claims she visited Intel’s site 12 times and was not informed of the “wiretapping.” The case has since been moved to federal court.
