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.


Symantec blinks - free update from NIS07 to NIS08

I've been a faithful user of Norton Anti-virus and their similar products for many years. I've never seen them offer a free update from one year's version to another. But it appears that they've decided that enough is enough with respect to the disaster that is NIS 07.

They've just offered an update from NIS 07 to NIS 08.

If you choose to download Norton Internet Security 2008, you will have the right to use this product until the expiration of your current subscription...

Well, that's fine. It aligns with my plans anyway...
