Microsoft Promised to Improve Its Adware Rules Next Year

Microsoft Promised to Improve Its Adware Rules Next Year

The tech giant has announced that it would detect and remove insecure adware from its computers in 2016. Such approach could prevent a repeat of Lenovo’s embarrassing self-inflicted security flaw dated March 2015, by making it mandatory for any advertising-based software to only use a web browser’s official methods for any actions, like installation, execution, disabling and removal.


Microsoft has revealed its new policy, which targets software like Superfish – the adware shipped by Lenovo pre-installed on its own laptops in 2014 and 2015. Superfish simply hijacked a user’s Internet connection through a so-called “man in the middle” attack and displayed advertising – even on webpages that were not supposed to have them.

According to Microsoft, such kinds of techniques intercept communications between the worldwide web and the personal computer in order to inject ads and promotions into webpages from outside, without the control of the web browser. So, Microsoft is going to keep the user in control of their browsing experience, while such methods reduce that control.

Aside from the loss of control (and the relevant suboptimal user experience of using a PC stuffed with unwanted ads), such adware also poses a security risk for users, said Microsoft. For instance, in the case of Superfish, the software hijacked the security system that delivered encrypted webpages in order to insert advertisements in Google search pages. The problem is that such activity also posed a serious risk for any user viewing sensitive information like a bank account or ecommerce website using a public Wi-Fi connection.

So, in a bid to solve the problem with such software, the tech giant has announced that from April 2016, it will allow to use software creating advertisements in browsers only through the browsers’ supported extensibility model for any actions, including installation, execution, disabling, and removal. This means that the programs will be installed as plugins to the web browsers, easily removable in the same way. In Lenovo’s case, even if a user managed to uninstall Superfish from their laptop, the security flaw it opened up remained active – this was a cause for concern until the computer maker apologized and provided a removal tool.

analogkid6103 avatarThats why I dont want any premade comp. I will build em myself and be far safer and less bothered by popups and whatnot.
It reminds me of what differences there are between adware and malware.....NONE

kingtiger01 avatarI really dont understand why its taken them more than a decade to come to this conclusion... This was a problem in the mid-90's from there OEM suppliers. They AGREED to let them do this, as a marketing technique...

Here is a idea, force OEM's to offer there 'additional software' as a post-install package, with Clear information as to each function and additional bundled software. Along with before and after screenshots of said software in action. - if people are still such sheeple to install it. They deserve what is coming to them, and should immediately stop using any form of technology and go work in the manufacturing sector for the rest of there lives and stop breeding.

Microsoft, why not set a example while your at it, and remove all remote-monitoring and adware/malware software from your OS's. - the NSA is not your customers, we are...

bm777 avatarYeah right..and we still believe in Santa Claus! Do not install windows 10, go to Linux or stay with windows 7 and turn off updates, use firefox with adblock and clear/clean your browser history with add-ons or manually on a regular basis (If you feel compelled in using MS Crapware)

No avatarComing from MS, improve means nothing to me. Illuminate, I might give them a +3. MS win 10 Nagware drove me nuts. Its gone from all my machines but I have to watch that the KB update doesn't get by me. I thought their was a law against Nagware being installed without your permission, I forgot MS can give you nagware because of the EULA.
