In February 2015, it was reported by CERT Coordination Center, that a new security feature in Ad-Aware Web Companion was implemented with Komodia SSL Digestor, one of Komodia's public SDKs, the company behind the Superfish security incident in Lenovo machines.This redirect is within the scope of Wiki Project Computing, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of computers, computing, and information technology on Wikipedia.If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks. Ad-Aware did not have to be deleted because there was nothing in its history except a redirect.If there had ever been more than that, you would have needed a sysop to delete the page, do the move and undelete it to restore the history, but anybody can do it without deleting anything if the history is nothing but a redirect. The official name of the company is adaware (no caps, no dashes, no hyphens) since 2017.- Play It Bogart , 16 February 2007 (UTC) == Controversy - Viewpoint by Daniel Assouline, CEO, Co-owner of adaware. *** Correction 1 ***** The company was acquired in January 2011 by the Solaria Fund, a private equity fund. It was soon discovered that the fund was actually a front for the entrepreneurs (Daniel Assouline and Michael Dadoun) behind Up Click and Interactive Brands. - Solaria is not a Private Equity Fund. - "It was soon discovered that the fund was actually a front for the entrepreneurs..." Why such a biased statement? If we wanted to hide the ownership - a Canadian Corporation with clear beneficial ownership is NOT the way to go. "actually a front for the entrepreneurs" - again, why such a biased statement? - The Guardian article is not very clear as it involved many different companies owned by different people.
In the 2008 Edition, Lavasoft bundled Ad-Aware Pro and Plus for the first time with an antivirus scanner, However, it stated that no such tests have been run on the newest version. Rubenking at PCMag performed a lab test on version 8.3, where Ad-Aware scored 9.2 points, beating the previous top score of 9.1.
Casey boy (talk) , 9 November 2009 (UTC) The term "Team Lavasoft" is a misnomer.
There is no "Team Lavasoft", however the Former team exists. Although we continue to assist with Ad-Aware SE, we are not "product specific" and help people with other software programs when Ad-Aware SE cannot remove the offending objects.
We can easily prove this as there are invoices and payments done for this.
Lavasoft's then-owners did voice their frustration when we started to advertise on their own keywords on Google (lavasoft, adaware, adaware antivirus).
- Reference 12: It is not Danchev, Dancho that wrote the entry - rather it is an entry by Anvisoft. It gets most of its traffic by spamming the search engines in writing dummy pages like this: IMPORTANT: The company and product claiming that our product is an antivirus has gotten very bad *** Correction 4 ***** Although the company shields itself behind the complete legality of bundled software and claims that their software is only used to fight malware, several users are starting to brand their products as malware. Again - where do they make this assumption?
