CYBERsitter's Battle Against Chinese Hackers
What happens when you file a lawsuit against a country for copying your software code? In the case of Santa Barbara-based Solid Oak Software--the company behind the CYBERsitter Internet filtering software--apparently, someone from that country mysteriously sends a team of hackers to kneecap your business. In a report published this week, Bloomberg details what it calls a "China Mafia-style Hack Attack" against Solid Oak after the firm sued China over stealing its source code for China's own Internet filtering and firewall efforts.
