VirnetX Files New Lawsuit Against Microsoft Corporation Citing Willful Infringement

Skype Products Subject of Complaint

ZEPHYR COVE, Nev., April 22, 2013

ZEPHYR COVE, Nev., April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VirnetX™ Holding Corporation
(NYSE MKT: VHC), an Internet security software and technology company,
announced today that on April 22, 2013, it filed a complaint against Microsoft
Corporation in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of
Texas, Tyler Division.  The complaint includes allegations of willful patent
infringement regarding six patents owned by VirnetX, U.S. Patent Nos.
6,502,135,  7,188,180,  7,418,504,  7,490,151,  7,921,211, and 7,987,274. 
Specifically, the complaint references Microsoft's Skype products as
infringing the VirnetX patents.  Skype was purchased after the limited license
was signed between Microsoft and VirnetX.    This infringement falls outside
of the scope of the prior license.  In its complaint, VirnetX seeks both
damages and injunctive relief.

"Although Microsoft previously signed a patent license with Virnetx, we
believe they are infringing our patents in ways that are outside the scope of
the original license," said Kendall Larsen, VirnetX CEO and President. "We
look forward to quickly resolving this matter."
