Symantec updates its consumer AV products

Symantec updates its consumer AV products

Symantec has released its second incremental software update for Norton Internet Security 2006, Norton SystemWorks 2006, and Norton Antivirus 2006. Existing customers of these products were notified of the updates and are now able to update their software via Symantec's LiveUpdate service. In December, 2005, Symantec updated its antivirus product line to auto-protect users against the installation of medium-to-high risk adware and spyware apps, and to seek out and remove spyware hidden through stealth technology. This latest LiveUpdate program change won't help its existing users much, however; this time Symantec has added the ability for its products to scan and remove high-risk spyware prior to installation on new systems.
