Two comScore panelists filed a lawsuit in August of 2011 after downloading comScore software.  Allegedly, comScore collected and sold consumers' Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, financial information, retail transactions, and other personal information.  The action may have violated the Stored Communications Act, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, the Electronics Communications Privacy Act, and the Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Practices act. The lawsuit might cover tens of millions of people who have downloaded comScore software since 2005.  In June of 2013, the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago denied comScore's request to overturn a lower court's decision that had allowed the suit to proceed as a class action suit.
