    Norton's AntiVirus DOS Flaw

    Grumble Grumble Grumble

    Symantec this week posted a patch for Norton's AntiVirus 2004 and 2005 to correct to flaws in their product that could be exploited to perform a Denial Of Service attack against your computer. For users of these products, you should run 'Live Update' to download and install the latest security patches...

    The Symantec Security notice only mentions Antivirus 2004 and 2005... But it's still a good idea to run 'Live Update' at monthly intevals, as the automatic updates will get the new virus definitions, but not the application patches....
