180solutions sues ZoneLabs for reporting product

PC World reports that news has leaked out that 180solutions is suing Zone Labs, makers of Zone Alarm, due to the firewall’s SmartDefense Advisor reporting to users that 180solutions’ 180search Assistant is trying to monitor mouse movements and keystrokes. Apparently, a number of “safe” programs have been triggering SmartDefense. It appears that Zone Alarm may be a little too sensitive and is likely to provide false positives. Such false positives however can adversely affect sales of other products, such as 180solutions’ products.
