So, Claria (aka Gator) Vice President D. Reed Freeman, Jr. has been appointed to Department of Homeland Security's Data Privacy and Integrity Committe. What a joke! Claria has no interest in privacy, their business model is built around fucking spyware.
I must strongly urge you to object to the appointment of Claria Vice President D. Reed Freeman, Jr. as a member of the Department of Homeland Security's Data Privacy and Integrity Committee. Claria, formerly known as Gator Systems, is the most pervasive purveyors of computer spyware in the industry.
As a computer security professional, I can tell you that Claria/Gator has no interest in consumer privacy. Their primary concern is sneaking spyware onto unsuspecting users systems and collecting statistical data which they then sell to their corporate customers. Claria software is installed without user consent, often using current security holes in Microsoft's Internet Explorer.
It is a complete farse that a representative of Claria should be appointed to DHS Data Privacy committee. This appointment will only hurt the already shabby credibility of the DHS.
