I'm curious as to PCPitstop's reaction regarding Microsoft's decision to downgrade Claria detection and to change the recommended action from "quarantine" to "ignore". It appeared earlier today that Microsoft did this in their latest definitions update #5731 issued today but then Sunbelt later today stated in their blog that, based on their quick scan of the definitions Microsoft supplies to them, Microsoft downgraded Claria as a spyware/privacy threat at the beginning of June. (Sunbelt's CounterSpy still sees Claria as a "very high risk threat and should be removed immediately as to prevent harm to your computer or your privacy" and recommends quarantine).
Speculation is that Microsoft did this because they are presently in talks with Claria and appear to be negotiating a purchase of Claria.
It would seem this is a sad day indeed. Microsoft appears to have decided to join the dark side perhaps because of a threatened lawsuit or perhaps because of their apparent desire to purchase Claria.
