Five Security Companies Being Sued
McAfee, Symantec, Webroot Software, Websense, and Sophos are going to see their day in court. According to Finjan, a former security company, the companies are in violation of two patents. Finjan is seeking financial damages and an injunction to stop those five security companies from selling software allegedly tied to the patents. What I find interesting is Finjan was bought out in late 2009 by the security firm M86. The two targets that were filed Monday in U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware are Patent No. 6,092,194 and Patent No. 6,480,962. Check out those patents to see more details.
