|Very brieflyThere’s been a lot of news lately regarding anti-virus software becoming the target of hackers making us vulnerable by the very software designed to protect us. In light of this new development I begrudgingly recommend that, as opposed to just updating the scan engines and virus definition files, you purchase extended service contracts from the publishers of your AV software of choice. It will then update the entire product including files targeted by hackers, not just the previous two files I mentioned.Gotta make you wonder, though. Doesn’t it? Who exactly was behind the start of this new trend? |
Computer virus watch.
Last month I was pretty hard on Symnantec for their unwise decision to charge users even for manual updates to their Antivirus software by giving them the boot from my AV update links. But I digress. If you still own the product and don’t mind paying too much for something most others offer for free, who am I to withhold the means for you to acquire the over priced updates? So, here again I include a link to get those updates.
