Lavasoft posted their latest response regarding WhenU.
Part of their message:
"First we will emphasize the fact that at no time have we ever had a relationship with vendors of applications that have, are, or will be included in our detection database; and any suggestions otherwise are totally without foundation in fact and/or reality. We remain committed to our roots and to the spirit of the privacy community.
We realized that the Threat Assessment Chart (TAC) was too rigid and needed to be strengthened so that it would not only better reflect the true purpose of Ad-Aware, but would also improve its reporting capabilities. The new TAC will not only allow us to retain, but will allow us to add more content, as well as highlight improvements in vendor offerings through a detailed color assessment code that will be more obvious to the user and thus provide better information for their decision making."
