Developers: Adware detection changes take effect July 1

Developers have until July 1 to let Microsoft know if they think their software shouldn’t be detected under the company’s new adware criteria, writes Michael Johnson on the Malware Protection Center blog.

Major changes to how adware will be assessed were announced a few months ago.

“This means that you have about a week to let us know if you think your program shouldn’t be detected,” Johnson writes.

Developers can make comments through the developer contact form. To read Johnson’s post, head over to the Malware Protection Center blog.
