The Anti-Spyware Coalition (ASC) today finalized its landmark "best practices" for the anti-spyware community. The document provides a critical tool to consumers and software developers -- illustrating the process by which software can be identified as "unwanted." ASC published a draft version of the best practices document for comment at the end of January. The version issued today reflects numerous refinements made after the comment period ended on Feb. 26. ASC also today released the finalized version of its Conflict Identification and Resolution Process, which establishes a routine methodology for resolving software conflicts between anti-spyware tools. CDT coordinates ASC activities.
