    Default AV-comparatives P.U.A December 2009 results

    The amount of adware, spyware and other fraudulent software circulating on the Internet has increased a great deal over the past few years. Such applications are not typical malware and their classification is sometimes not an easy task; they are usually described using the term “potentially unwanted application” (PUA). Under some circumstances, certain “potentially unwanted applications” are accepted/wanted in some countries, depending on cultural background or legal system, due to which legal disputes sometimes come up as to whether a program can be considered to be malware or not. The term “potentially unwanted” covers this grey area.
