    Thats good news. I was worried (not about the actual Magic Lantern program) but that some hacker would create a trojan almost identical to it so it would slip through the anti-virus software.

    Angry grrr...

    I'm pissed that any organization within a goverment that heralds freedom, would stoop to analyzing my &*(^%$# e-mail. Why don't you just invade my cookies while you're at it?...
    ^&*(ing hypocrites...

    Hello? FBI? CIA? Blow me!

    It's subversive tactics and corrupted ideal like these that help create Black Hat Hackers...

    GRRRRR!

    That's some good news Focmaester, thanks for the link. I was wondering about Symantec because I've been an avid user of their stuff for years...glad to see they didn't fold like I thought at the beginning.

    i say its a bs cover-up. the denials seem very carfully worded. they dont say "we will not allow any type of virus or trojan, government sponsored or not, to run on a system that our software is running on". they say "Symantec's first priority is to protect our customers from malicious and illegal attacks"(bolded for emphisis). they could easily claim that because this is the FBI it will not be used maliciously.

    Yeah, that's true, but then the minute (and you know it'd happen) someone found out, it'd be published and shiggity-blakow, said company's software would be sitting on a shelf, not being bought... This is mainly why I switched to Sophos, a UK based company who's been doing AV work for 10 years now and is pretty highly ranked... go here to check it out. Sure it's expensive, but I'd rather pay good money for a good product that's fighting the good fight, rather than A: not have one at all, or B: support something that "may" be shady to any degree.
