    Attention NAV Users

    As the article says, don't panic but it's worth keeping your eyes open. Be sure to read the LAST paragraph: Company: Hackers can crack top antivirus program - May 25, 2006

    As I read it, the firm discovered the vulnerability and told Symantec about it, and nobody else was involved. So unless the flaw is discovered independently by malicious hackers, then we just have to wait for Symantec to fix the problem which exists only with the Corporate Edition?

    Al,

    You can't "discover" the flaw by reading publicly available information - that just tells you that a flaw exists.

    Al,

    Sorry, it's been a long long week - and I guess I just didn't see that invisible smilie.

    AND I'm not saying what anti-virus software I have on this PC <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> .
