BidClerk Withdraws Lawsuit Against RBI

Nov 11, 2010

BidClerk, Inc. and Reed Business Information (“RBI”) have settled claims relating to denial-of-service and “click fraud” attacks BidClerk believed to be the result of intentional activity by RBI.

On September 29, 2010, BidClerk filed a lawsuit against RBI in Minnesota federal court relating to unusual web activity affecting BidClerk’s computer servers, which originated from an IP address owned by RBI.

RBI promptly conducted an investigation of its computer systems and reported the results of its efforts to BidClerk. After reviewing the information RBI provided and conducting its own investigation, BidClerk is satisfied that the suspicious activity affecting BidClerk’s computers was not the result of intentional acts by RBI. The parties are satisfied that the cause of the cyber attacks has been identified, and BidClerk has agreed to drop its complaint against RBI without any payment from RBI to settle the case.
