Symantec Update Blocks AOL
I never intended to create a Blog about flawed updates but they seem to keep on coming. Today, BetaNews.com released a story about a faulty update for users of Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security. Seems that their last update mistook AOL traffic as malicious and is blocking users from reconnecting.
Error messages include:
Lan connection lost
TCP/IP has lost the connection because network subsystem has failed
Symantec recommends AOL users run LiveUpdate and download all available updates. Ummmm… This could be a real problem. If AOL users can’t get online, how will they receive the update?
