New security software industry scam

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by Straight Talk, Jul 17, 2007.

  1. What a scam!

    Symantec announces a new breed of "security products" - namely the
    "Anti-BotWare".

    IOW, once again the security software industry manages to
    sub-categorize malware making it possible to introduce new
    anti-whatever products.

    There is *absolutely no reason* why bots shouldn't be detected by
    normal anti-malware. Well, except for one: MONEY.

    These companies deserve nothing but having their butts kicked. But of
    course that won't happen. Most users are too ignorant to see through
    the hype.

    Best way to send your message is switch to Linux. Not much use for
    Norton there.
