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.

And those of you who have no idea what this is doing here or who this is can click over to this post (The W). If he decides to stick around, we'll try to get him posting in some of those non-wrestling places, too. ;-)
