Lawsuit Alleges Interclick ‘History Sniffing’ Violates Fed Computer Fraud And Wiretap Laws

A New York resident sued behavioral targeting network Interclick for allegedly using Flash cookies and history-sniffing techniques to thwart her attempts to prevent online tracking.

“Interclick invaded Plaintiff’s privacy, misappropriated her personal information, and interfered with the operability of her computer,” Sonal Bose alleges in a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in New York on Wednesday. Bose alleges that Interclick violated federal computer fraud laws as well as wiretap laws. She is seeking class-action status.
