I see the Department of Homeland Security's Threat Advisory Level has been replaced with with Symantec's ThreatCon, which tells the level of current internet security risks. Any reason for that?

I like it. It's more likely to change (we've been at Threat Advisory Yellow since August), and truthfully, more likely to affect my day-to-day life.

Hmmmm....interesting change. I found this at www.symantec.com....

    Originally posted on Symantec's website
    ThreatCon Level 1
    Low : Basic network posture
    This condition applies when there is no discernible network incident activity and no malicious code activity with a moderate or severe risk rating. Under these conditions, only a routine security posture, designed to defeat normal network threats, is warranted. Automated systems and alerting mechanisms should be used.


I think it's a great idea. I may put something like that on my site, as well.

Then how come we're at level one? I hear every newsreader in the world talking about some virus that will kill us all (hopefully NAV's got it covered or I am screwed).



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

The last virus scare I heard was one that would delete every Word, and Excel file on ones hard drive or something like that.

I completely forgot that there were different skins on the site, so I cycled through them all this morning, before keeping Pffft! Lise, I am still eagerly anticipating the next edition of the Pffft! comic.
