Microsoft's Digital Crimes Unit has announced that it will be filing a lawsuit in federal court in California against tech support scammers, a practice that the company says has cost consumers money for unnecessary repairs and security services. In its suit against Omnitech Support, Microsoft alleges that the firm uses Microsoft's marks to appear like a credible tech support service in an effort to mislead consumers.
Microsoft goes even further in its claim saying that Omnitech also installed malicious software, including a password keylogger, to obtain personal logins to access their victim's financial data.
