    How Symantec checks for hacking attacks...

    Guys,

    Here you have how Symantec checks for hacking attacks from its security central.

    An ordinary office building on Route 1 in Alexandria offers a rare window into the Internet hacker wars and a few clues to why Uncle Sam wants more monitoring capabilities in cyberspace. Inside a cavernous room on the first floor there, security analysts for Symantec sit in long, curved rows 24 hours a day, working on computers and facing a wall of theater-size screens. Information displayed on the screens helps them keep tabs on whether any attacks are underway at any of the company's more than 600 corporate clients. Every five minutes or so, a giant, illuminated globe appears on the central screen and starts to rotate, displaying the locations worldwide where hackers are launching the most attacks. Symantec uses special technology to monitor a huge chunk of the public Internet along with the internal nooks and crannies of its clients' private networks, looking for telltale signs of computer break-ins...

    Bimmer: Don't worry....<s>

    It reminds me of many years ago when I was young and the Vietnam war was on. there was a report on the TV about how the Vietcong Geurillas were attacking bases there. I was watching with my parents and after some minutes I felt the need to clarify a point......

    I asked my parents why _gorillas_ would be attacking the soldiers?....... It's still one of my family's favorite stories....<sigh.

    Sometimes you just see things one way..... Like when you write a memo. Doesn't matter how many times you read it it may still contain a huge Gaff.... But you know the way you wrote it so the Gaff doesn't appear for you....<s>
