CIA used 'illegal, inaccurate' software to direct assassination drones
Tuesday - 9/28/2010, 4:45pm EDT
At the center of the case is a package of location analysis software called "Geospatial." The software was developed by a small company called Intelligent Integration Systems (IISi).
In 2006, IISi partnered with data warehousing company Netezza for the Geospatial project.
IISi claims Netezza "midled the CIA by saying that it could deliver the software on its new hardware, to a tight deadline," according to The Register.
IISi refused to rush the job, but Netezza "hastily reverse-engineered IISi's code," IISi alleges.
The software company is now seeking an injunction to ban Netezza and the CIA from using the software or any derivative of it.
