Court: Wife broke law with spyware

A wife who installed spyware on her husband’s computer to secretly record evidence of an extramarital affair violated state law, a Florida court ruled Friday.
The Florida Appeals Court, Fifth District said that Beverly Ann O’Brien “illegally obtained” records of husband James’ online conversations with another woman as the two played Yahoo Dominoes together.
“It is illegal and punishable as a crime under (state law) to intercept electronic communications,” wrote Judge Donald Grincewicz on behalf of a three-judge panel.Court: Wife broke law with spyware | CNET News.com
