+ - Spying Company Gamma Possibly Violates LGPL in its FinFisher Trojan->

Submitted by Voulnet
Voulnet (1630793) writes "According to analysis and report by CitizenLab of the Gamma FinFisher trojan spyware used against dissidents in the middle east and around the world, the FinFisher codebase uses a LGPL component of the The GNU Multiple Precision Arithmetic Library, possibly without adhering to its restrictions.

This could spur an interesting avenue of fighting surveillance software used against the populations around the world, especially with Mozilla now taking legal action against the same firm, Gamma, because it distributed a Trojan with Firefox's brand and trademark."
