Re: Ah, Microsoft

"Now giving its blessing to malware authors through sheer lack of giving a fuck."

MS wrote a blog post about the incident, in which they described what the malware would do and said they suspended the creator's account and reviewed past submissions. And added it to their free anti-malware product.

You can express dissatisfaction while still acknowledging that they didn't completely stonewall this as some other companies do.
