    Yep a bit like my suspicion of a a certain Eastern European AV company a few years ago. With any of the Av companies.. where is ALL the Marketing money spent..
    And when the *nix market is ripe.. which of the AV companies will "Discover" the First mass spreader? will it be a skript kiddy or the Kalamazoo marketing company that just happens to sub contract to a subontractor to Symantec or McAfee or RAV (nod nod wink wink)..

    Notice when A Virus is in the news. - even a Cat 1 Virii- . AV product sales skyrocket- and when they aren't in the news -inspite of the proliferation of cat 3's and 4's- AV product sales are very ordinary..

    Always funny.. if a media company ie Packer or murdoch in Aussi- have a worm or virii go through their systems..it is frontpage news.. so If I was the little subcontractor .. guesswho I would make sure were on my hit list when sales are quiet?

    Cheers

    Undies: Yeah... I know what you mean and I'm with you on it.... I was just harping back to my youth when viruses were "what?????".... and AV companies were an mere egg in the thing of the future.... There were people back then, and I wasn't far from the "pack", that said that viruses were a "fad" and would be eliminated..... Of course, at that time the internet was 1200 baud or less..... Who would have known? Viruses going worldwide in 15 minutes is the target..... <lol> Boot sector viruses from the floppy you left in the drive used to take 15 minutes to infect your machine at the speed they used to boot...

    I was reminiscing.... Give an old fart his 1.5 seconds... ok? <LOL>
