ATI responds to Spyware claims

| Posted: Jan 19, 2003 10:33 pm

Borsti over at RIVA Station got an official word from ATI regarding claims of nasty Spyware in their newest Catalyst driver sets.

 

"In no way is ATI responsible for using or installing any spyware or other monitoring services as part of CATALYST.

 

We recognize that customers may be experiencing these symptoms and ATI is working directly with these customers to resolve the issue. ATI has developers working to track this issue. Furthermore, ATI have started engaging with Microsoft to see if they know anything about this situation as it appears that the IP it is trying to connect to seems to be a Microsoft site for CRL (Certificate Revoked List).

 

ATI will provide an update as soon as the resolution is discovered. But once again, this is not an ATI specific activity that is causing these events."
