    Symantec Corp.'s leading antivirus software, which protects some of the world's largest corporations and U.S. government agencies, suffers from a flaw that lets hackers seize control of computers to steal sensitive data, delete files or implant malicious programs, researchers said Thursday.

    Symantec said it was investigating the issue but could not immediately corroborate the vulnerability. If confirmed, the threat to computer users would be severe because the security software is so widely used and because no action is required by victims using the latest versions of Symantec Antivirus to suffer a crippling attack over the Internet.

Yeah, welcome to last week. Fortunately, none of the Norton stuff is affected so (hopefully) most of the people who ARE affected are also smart enough to keep their updates updated.

Okay, so I'm thinking about finally updating my old laptop (Windows ME doesn't really do it for me anymore, y'know?) and I want to cash in on some bargains while the promise - threat? - of Vista brings down the prices on machines currently running XP ......
