EFF investigates keylogger software, finds false advertising

From its report on ComputerCOP:
In investigating ComputerCOP, we also discovered misleading marketing material, including a letter of endorsement purportedly from the U.S. Department of Treasury, which has now issued a fraud alert over the document. ComputerCOP further claims an apparently nonexistent endorsement by the American Civil Liberties Union and an expired endorsement from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
And, of course, this software touts itself as the "perfect election and fundraising tool," and its producers donate to the campaigns of at least one purchaser.
