SANS - Survey on application security programs

AltaVista is due in the High Court today to defend its claim against alleged breach of contract brought by British ISP, the Free Internet Group (FIG).

FIG started legal proceedings in June claiming it has lost profits of £215 million over three years from advertising, sponsorship, premium rate telephone services, click revenue, registration and renewal fees, and other income due to the alleged breach of contract.

FIG claims it was contracted to provide flat-fee unmetered net access for AltaVista UK but that the Webco pulled out of the deal.

Vesey Crichton, AltaVista Europe's marketing and strategy director told Reg that the claim was "without merit".

Last month AltaVista UK admitted that it had not launched an unmetered Net access service despite maintaining that the service was up and running. The embarrassing climb-down led to the resignation of AltaVista UK MD, Andy Mitchell. ®
