Privacy, Security, Encryption Well, this clearly needs to get its own item. Yesterday we linked to a story about how Samsung is supposedly installing keyloggers onto its laptops to track user behaviour. Samsung immediately launched an investigation into the matter, and has come to a rather humbling conclusion: the guy coming up with the story is incompetent, and Samsung has the evidence to prove it.

I'm not sure which side to believe on this one, but if Hassan really was using Vipre, he deserves to be ridiculed. That program has a history of false positives worse than most. It's become famous in certain circles for misidentifying accessibility products, such as screen readers and magnifiers, as Malware and removing them without consulting the user.

It's not just Vipre it seems, some other never heard AV-tools are also mistaking SL-folder as virus.

Epic failure from 2 people who claim to be security experts!
