Well it seems the vendor of a casino software application does not like it being detected by Spybot Search & Destroy. The reason it is detected is that it appears to be installed by a trojan. And, rather than try to track down the offending trojan authors(who knows, they could even be an affiliate) they instead told Safer-Networking unless they removed the detection, published an apology and some other non-sense they would take legal action.

Sounds like another greedy vendor to me. Oh their named DeskMates and Spybot politely told them to beat it.
