I found this story of interest since it involved one of the most respected security software companies that many of us have come to trust. Symantec, maker of Norton products, has a vast arsenal of products to protect both consumer and business systems. But if this company is venerable from being attacked by pirates, this should hoist a warning flag for all of us that we must keep our own systems protected and our anti-virus and anti-spyware protections updated. This is why I post weekly update reminders for some of the free software products that I use and trust. Without updating your software with the latest protections, these software products are useless.

And check out my article about Free online scanners.
