FlightSimLabs, the Developers that were found to be deliberately making use of malware as a form of DRM, are back at it again with an executable file that can be used to bypass UAC in an interesting way. As a result of the public backlash over this, the Developers have threatened the Flight Sim Subreddit Moderators with a defamation lawsuit and have also attempted to get people’s personal information from the site fselite.net in order to make additional legal threats against commenters on that site.
