A Hacker by Any Other Name Might Have Escaped Data Seizure

The United States District Court for the District of Idaho has ordered the seizure of data from the computers of white hat hacking firm South Fork Security in response to a lawsuit brought by Battelle. Battelle alleges Southfork’s cofounder, Corey Thuen, copied an application called “Sophia” that he helped develop while working at Battelle, and then planned to sell it as an open source product. The lawsuit makes eight claims against Thuen and Southfork, including copyright infringement and trade secret misappropriation.
