Ad injection software that uses man-in-the-middle (MiTM) techniques will be classed as malware by Microsoft, and blocked accordingly.
In a blog post on Tuesday, Microsoft said that the move to block such ad injection comes as part of the computer giant’s commitment to its users to maintain they have control of their “Microsoft experience”.
