A Symantec security flaw discovered by an independent security consultant is unlikely to be exploited -- despite its rating as a high risk by Symantec itself and a very high risk by security firm Secunia, said Forrester Research senior analyst Michael Gavin. The vulnerability, which could allow a hacker to take control of a machine during decompression of RAR files -- a file format commonly used for storage of large video or audio files -- is very similar to another one discovered in February.

Glad I got rid of all symantec and McAfee products from all of my business computers.
Switched to kaspersky instead. Much faster and better scanner.

What do you think of politically inspired Internet memes?
They tend to be brutally honest about their targets.
They're usually cheap shots based on lies.
They're often stupid but amusing.
They can have a dangerous influence on uninformed people.
They don't impress me one way or the other.
