I've been running Ad-Aware at least once a week for over a year now with
no unwarranted outbound attempts noted. Nor have I heard of any other
claims that there is spyware in it. Unless someone comes up with some
more definitive information, I wouldn't be too worried about what someone
"heard" from a "consortium" that is all of two months old and seems to be
made up of 3 small companies who sell competing products.
