Security Researcher Fined Again

In March, we noted that a security researcher in France who had published a report noting some security holes in an anti-virus product was threatened with being sent to jail for exposing the vulnerabilities. Eventually, the courts decided to just fine him. However, at the same time, there was another civil suit against the same researcher, and it looks like he's been fined again. Between the two cases, it looks like he's going to have to pay over 15,000 euros for pointing out that this particular software had serious security vulnerabilities. [via Techdirt]
