Symantec has patched a flaw that could leave PCs open to attack without the user taking any action.
Symantec took just five days to patch the flaw, which was much quicker than eEye's prediction that it could take up to two months to fix.
However, a corporate customer who uses Symantec antivirus software sent vnunet.com an email complaining about the update. "I can tell you that patching the product is a real pain," he said.
"It involves a complete install of the newer version in order to move from 10.0.1 to 10.0.2 before the latest sequence of patches can even be applied.
"All very frustrating when you consider that the product has live update that you would expect would be a good mechanism for delivering updates."
