iGGBA ENDS GAMBLING FEDERATION MEMBERSHIP - Saturday 12th of March 2005

Following an official inquiry into the allegations of the use of malware in the Gambling Federation's software, iGGBA has determined that the company is in violation of the iGGBA Code of Conduct and has thereby terminated Gambling Federation's membership of the Association with immediate effect. The inquiry determined that the Gambling Federation had indeed intentionally embedded malware in their customers' software to prevent them from using certain competitor's web sites.

"While it is regrettable that one of the Gambling Federation's ex-employees did seek to illegally access and use the Company's customer database, the response of the company was incorrect and adversely affected customers who are the lifeblood of the remote gambling industry. It is vitally important that the industry takes action in ensuring that operators and suppliers are providing fair and fraud free services to customers and the actions of the Gambling Federation were inconsistent with this approach.", stated Richard Flint, Chairman of iGGBA.
