Yahoo's Anti-Spy Toolbar Problems

I am still getting out of the SES conference mode. Tomorrow, I will get back to the SEM forum coverage. Just one news item that caught my eye, in light of this past week. Yahoo's, this week, has repeatedly talked about how its anti-spy toolbar was one of his latest and greatest applications. Even at the "executive roundtable" session, when asked about the top features released by their engines, the Yahoo! rep brought up the toolbar.

Now, I see an article at C|Net named Yahoo's Anti-Spy toolbar feature buggy. What a shame, and I quote, "Yahoo on Friday confirmed that its recently released toolbar has mistakenly linked an alleged spyware program with a product that has nothing to do with the application in question."
