    What Symantec Knew But Didn't Say

    Hey All,

    Security firm Symantec withheld information about at least one big cyberthreat for hours after spotting it, possibly harming millions of Internet users.

    Symantec claims to have identified the Slammer worm that ravaged the Internet during the last weekend of January hours before anyone else did.

    Symantec then shared the information only with select customers, leaving the rest of the global community to get slapped around by Slammer.

    It all comes from "DeepSight Threat Management System" which was a securityfocus product untill Symantec bought them up. DeepSight is like one big IDS system that covers most of world. But I have to ask everyone, if you don't charge for a servce like deepSight, who is going to pay for it?
