Symantec repairs flaw in anti-virus software

Symantec said its engineers have worked 24 hours a day on the problem since its discovery last week by eEye Digital Security of Aliso Viejo, Calif. 'Symantec is a company used to responding rapidly,' said Vince Weafer, senior director for Symantec's security response unit.

Weafer said consumer versions of Symantec's popular Norton Anti-virus software — sold at retail outlets around the country — were not vulnerable to the flaw. Symantec's anti-virus products are installed on more than 200 million computers

Here is a quick update to a story we have been covering. Kudos to Symantec for fixing it quickly.
