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.


Stoopid, stoopid, stoopid...

A message suddenly appeared on the screen.

"8/11/2007" ??

It says "Your last protection update occurred on 8/11/2007".

Huh? I'm pretty sure I ran LiveUpdate within the last couple of days...

So I checked.

"16/11/2007" ??

Yep, two days ago (16/11/2007).

Obviously Symantec hires the stoopidest programmers in the world. They're just idiots. There's no excuse for these sorts of elementary mistakes.

And these are just the self-evident errors. How many of the unexplained little day-to-day glitches are they also responsible for?
