Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of DesignerWare, LLC, FTC File No. 1123151
Beyond the BLATANT and EGREGIOUS privacy violations committed by DesignerWare's software, some of the features included in it betray an obvious intent to commit even larger crimes. The inclusion of features to intercept account registration forms, and as such steal account login information of PC users, has NO legitimate use. That feature alone is indicative of an intent to commit large-scale fraud and identity theft. That feature alone should warrant a full investigation not only by the FTC, but also by any applicable law enforcement agencies.
