| Hackers settle Cyber Patrol suit
| ACLU attorney 'surprised' as programmers surrender rights to their
| hack of Cyber Patrol filter and agree to permanent injunction.
| BOSTON -- Two hackers sued by Cyber Patrol maker Microsystems Software
| Inc. have settled with the filtering firm.
| The defendants, both of them programmers -- one Swedish, the other
| Canadian -- agreed Monday to abide by permanent injunctions preventing
| them from distributing their software, which allows users to bypass
| Cyber Patrol filters. They also agreed to turn over rights to their
| software to Microsystems.

Was ist mit der Analyse? Im Prinzip dürfte diese ausreichen, um selbst
Software zu schreiben. Sie enthält auch keinen Quellcode, so daß eine
Clean-Room-Implementation leicht möglich wäre.
