U.S. files first suit against Internet 'spy ware'


WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The U.S. government has sued a New Hampshire man in its first attempt to crack down on Internet "spy ware" that seizes control of a user's computer without permission.

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission on Thursday asked a federal court to shut down an operation that it said disables users' computers in an attempt to bully them into buying anti-spy ware products. More from CNN
