Submission + - Samsung keylogger could be false (networkworld.com) 2

mug funky writes: UPDATE 3/31/11: GFI Labs, the maker of VIPRE, has issued an explanation and apology for generating the false positives that led to these articles: "We apologize to the author Mohamed Hassan, to Samsung, as well as any users who may have been affected by this false positive."

looks like it wasn't just me who was surprised that of all the Samsung laptops in the world, only two have this issue and both were found by one guy (who was loath to divulge the AV tool he was using)

We all agree on the necessity of compromise. We just can't agree on when it's necessary to compromise. -- Larry Wall
