This blog is primarily concerned with NIS 2007 (and a bit on NIS 08). I have nothing to say about more recent versions.

This blog is more or less dormant (except for occasional comments on related news), and is being left on-line as a historical record and perhaps as a warning to future generations of anti-virus coders.


Item 14: LUCallBackProxy multiple instances plugging up the Internet connection

My system's access to the Internet has been impeded by something. So I monitored the running processes during these delays and discovered three or four instances of LUCallBackProxy taking most of the resources.

LUCallBackProxy. In case you haven't guessed, the LU stands-for LiveUpdate.

Surprise, surprise - Symantec strikes again.

Why they feel the need to spawn three or four instances is beyond me.

Geesh - they suck so bad...
