    The business of AntiVirus is 'Dead' >> per Symantec

    The following is an extract from TheRegister and I hope it is not improper to copy/paste here for the benefit of the members:
    Symantec: {AV business} no longer 'a moneymaker'
    Oh, and it's still 40 per cent of our business
    Symantec, a company that has made huge amounts of cash as the largest antivirus software vendor for the last quarter of a century, looks to be getting out of that business and into fixing hacking problems rather than stopping them.
    "We don't think of antivirus as a moneymaker in any way," Brian Dye, Symantec's senior vice president for information security, told The Wall Street Journal, adding that antivirus was "dead."...
