Microsoft has come under fire for naming the developer of a program that can install adware on user's PCs as one of its Most Valued Professionals.
MVPs are people with deep knowledge of Microsoft products who volunteer to answer technical questions for other users or contribute to its software in significant ways. It's a prestigious recognition, with only about 2,600 MVPs worldwide.
Microsoft recently added Cyril Paciullo to its MVP list. He's the developer of Messenger Plus...But security experts say his software is also a distribution vehicle for Lop...
MVP redefined = More Virus Providers
Edit: After reading some postings at SWI about this it seems MS has been flooded with emails from Security MVPs and they may reconsider the award.
