Norton Antivirus attacks
Full story can be found here;
An error occurring in the update of Norton's virus database on Friday has caused millions of PCs and computers to crash-a heavy blow to people's daily work and ongoing business.
The common symptom is that the computer may suddenly encounter a blue screen and then be prompted with an error message. The same problem remains even after a reboot of the system.
Wow I didnt expect anything like this. I'm currently running Kaspersky for AV and internet security suite.

Yes, this is a problem that security software faces................ they have to update at least daily, so they don't have the same window of opportunity for testing that other softwares do.
There was an incident about a year ago with PC-Cillin that affected Japan and the Far East in a similar sort of way. They had to pay several million dollars in compensation as I recall.
If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?
