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.


Who are their programmers?

Has Symantec out-sourced the actual day-to-day programming to some off-shore outfit that hasn't got a clue? Or are the making these dumb-ass mistakes themselves?

Some of these errors and mistakes are so blatantly obvious that you need to question the brain-power of the people involved in their production. Honestly, anyone with even half a brain should be able to spot these sorts of obvious errors.

If Symantec were in charge of the USA Space Program, you could probably stroll from Florida to Africa walking on nothing but heaping piles of twisted and smoldering aluminum. The Atlantic Ocean would be filled in.
