Re: Symantec AV may execute viruses

I would actually expect LiveUpdate for the home versions to get the update automatically. The corporate edition however does not update the software via LiveUpdate - they figure IT departments would rather control when the software gets updated themselves, but unfortunately in most companies that probably means almost never :\

Also, it doesn't appear that this issue effects the Mac software (at least, I didn't see the Mac products in the Symantec vulnerability list), only Windows products.
