To all Norton AV app users,

Symantec has just posted a further 257.6 kb's of micro-definitions
to take total to 62,724.

This is their 2nd live update within 12 hours!

Cheers,Kiwitas,;-)

Why so many?? I thought it was normally once every 5 or so days!

Symantec usually update every day but these updates are not tested
untill they are ready for their "Live updates" that are usually once a week!

At the moment there is a highly malicious virus called ExploreZip about
as well as the I-worm, masquerading under the names of Naith,Linva or Avril as well as other possible aliases!

The other major AV suppliers have also been updating with gay abandon
trying to stay in front of the bogie writers!

Cheers,Kiwitas,;-)
