[AP] A Santa Barbara company said Friday that the Internet-filtering software that China has mandated for all new personal computers sold in that country contains stolen programming code.
Solid Oak Software Inc. said parts of its filtering program, which is designed for parents, can be found in the Green Dam Youth Escort filtering software that must be packaged with all computers sold in China starting next month.
