Symantec’s troubles are far from over

Symantec’s new leader has his work cut out for him – the company has a lot of issues that need fixing! The latest is a relatively benign (but nonetheless spooky) security hole in its firewall softwares that can bop users off of IRC chat networks.

“Symantec said Wednesday it plans to tweak the behavior of its Norton Internet Security and Norton Personal Firewall products..”

This kind of thing should simply not be happening to a firm who is focused on security. I’d say they have a heck of a lot more than “tweaking” to do.

Postcards from hell

I used to love getting those little email postcards around the holidays, likely because it provided validation that at least one person liked me (which is still a hard thing to grasp). Now I realize that getting one of those things was actually a sign that someone DISLIKED me, and I feel relieved.
