Symantec Update Blocks AOL

I never intended to create a Blog about flawed updates but they seem to keep on coming. Today, 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?
