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.
