Thursday, July 07, 2005 Microsoft Blog: Status change for Claria Microsoft Blog: Status change for Claria

This is not looking good at all. From Todd Bishop:

This was the story last week in the New York Times: "For the last two weeks, Microsoft has been in talks to buy a private Silicon Valley company, a move that underscores just how eager Microsoft is to catch up with Google, the search and advertising giant. The company that Microsoft has pursued is controversial: Claria, an adware marketer formerly called Gator, and best known for its pop-up ads and software that tracks people visiting Web sites."

This was a story today in eWeek: "Microsoft's Windows AntiSpyware application is no longer flagging adware products from Claria Corp. as a threat to PC users."
