What happened to AdAware?

Suzi has reported that Eric L. Howes has discovered that AdAware no longer detects WhenU’s Save product in its scans, this following Aluria partnering up with WhenU.

Update: According to Chris Fry from Lavasoft had this to say on the Lavasoft Support forums:

Hi all,

First and foremost, Lavasoft does not have collaborations with any company that has or will have content detected by Ad-Aware. WhenU was indeed removed from our database by research in the last definition file. This was due to WhenU not scoring more than 2 TAC points at the time. In case it turns out that the removal was incorrect, WhenU will naturally be reintroduced to the database.

Thanks Chris Fry
