Can I ask what part of NIS/NAV 2009 fails in the detection of new/old threats?

Hi

I read with interest these posts about NIS2009/NAV2009 not detecting different threats.As someone who does not know a lot about this area,I was wondering would someone explain to a uneducated computer user( uneducated in picking up virus's,Trojans etc) How this happens.Do the people making these posts go looking for these threats or do they just come across them by accident(which I assume is how they should be found)

If you were finding that many unknown threats would you not change your surfing habits? To look at the whole approach to surfing the net as well as taking into account  the software's responsibilities in prevention/protection(sorry if I'm naive)


Do these failed detections involve the firewall etc.I have a lot of questions but I just want to know is NIS/NAV such a bad product for an average Mum/Dad user?

What are your opinions.

Hi mo,

Some of the folks test their security systems by "self-inflicting" themselves with malware to check the detection rate.

Others may become infected unintentionally and generally those posts are evident because the user is looking for a remedy.

I agree that those who are testing should make it clear that they are doing so and also list the source of the test malware file they are using (not a direct link nor the actual file) . Some sources of test malware are tainted as they may have come from a website looking to sell their antimalware product.

NIS 2009 is a fabulous product for a Mom/Dad user as the protection is automatic requiring little to no user intervention.

As for me, ten years using Norton products, normal surfing habits and I have never been infected on three computers.

Hope that helps.

I think many, many people work quietly in the background, hunting for malware and submitting it to Symantec.  I suspect that quite a few of our posters do that without fanfare.  I find the expression of "Oh my God, Symantec! You missed another one!" to be counter-productive.

Thanks guys

That is what I was thinking,If you intentionally go looking for Malware make it clear on the posts you make that you got the "BUG" by these means=SELF INFLICTED.So any Mom/Dad user does not get the wrong impression of NIS/NAVs capabilities. And yes there is always room for improvement on the companies part in these areas.

And for those of you who do get the virus "by the  old fashioned way" I hope these forums can help 

Thanks for your input.

I am glad for those of you who do go and find these nasties as Delphinium stated a big thank you!
