CyberLock Accused of “Abuse of the Legal System” After Threatening Researcher

Electronic lock maker CyberLock drew harsh criticism for its “abuse of the legal system” when it sent threatening legal letters to a researcher to prevent him from publicly revealing his research about its products. The researcher uncovered security flaws that undermined the protections promised by CyberLock’s locks and notified the company of his findings. In response, the company slapped the researcher with threatening legal letters to discourage him from publicly revealing his research, sparking media criticism and outraging members of the security community.
