Verant Interactive is canceling a policy of scanning Everquest players PC's as an anti-cheating measure. The company had planned to search player's machine for tools that would allow cheating in Everquest's online world, and had threatened to ban players who refused to allow the searches. A backlash from players with privacy concerns has convinced the company to abandon the plan. "In our haste to try and thwart people from damaging the game, we went overboard," said Verant's John Smedley.
