Now that Microsoft is getting serious about the Spyware and Antivirus market, they have streamlined the way customers submit malicious code samples and detection feedback. If you run across some nasty code, or have a bad detection experience – here are the addresses to use:
- email@example.com – (virus/worm/trojan/etc.)
- firstname.lastname@example.org – (spyware samples)
If your submission is related to false positive or false negative detection, please indicate this in the subject line of your e-mail. Add the word “infected” if you’re submitting a .zip or .rar containing infected code.
Thanks to Randy Treit, Antimalware Team PM, for the information.
