|BT should face prosecution for its "illegal" trials of a controversial ad-serving technology, a leading computer security researcher has said. |
Dr Richard Clayton at the University of Cambridge made his comments after reviewing a leaked BT internal report.
The document reveals details of a 2006 BT trial with the Phorm system, which matches adverts to users' web habits.
