Symantec patches four critical firewall flaws
For the third time this year, Internet security firm Symantec has had to release patches to plug critical security flaws in many of its popular antivirus and firewall packages.
Security firm eEye on Wednesday published details of four security holes that affect a range of Symantec's client-based applications including Norton Internet Security, Norton AntiVirus and Norton AntiSpam. Symantec has published a security response on its Web site.
Guido Sanchidrián, Symantec's EMEA product manager for antivirus, content filtering and security response, said the company has spent the past month developing fixes for the vulnerabilities and has now made the patches available to its customers.
