Intel Sued Under Wiretapping Laws for Tracking User Activity on its Website | Threatpost

A class-action suit in Florida accuses the tech giant of unlawfully intercepting communications by using session-replay software to capture the interaction of people visiting the corporate homepage Intel.com.

At issue in the case is session replay software that Intel—and many other companies–use on their respective websites that can track how people interact with the site, including recording their mouse movements and clicks, information they input into the site, and the pages and content they view, according to the suit.

The suit claims that this activity by Intel violates the 2020 Florida Security of Communications Act, which makes it illegal to intentionally intercept another person’s electronic communications without first letting the person know and asking for his or her consent.
