Software Company Files Suit Over Vulnerability Disclosure
http://www.gcn.com/21_34/security/20634-1.html

AutoProf.Com Inc., a New Hampshire software company, published a
white paper in July describing vulnerabilities in a tool from Florida
software company ScriptLogic Corp. ScriptLogic has filed a federal
lawsuit against AutoProf that accuses the Portsmouth-based company
of violating copyright laws and license agreements, and asks that the
company pay $75,000 in damages and recall their white paper. AutoProf
and ScriptLogic are competitors. The case underscores the need for
vulnerability disclosure guidelines.

The AutoProf White Paper can be found here:
