Symantec malware move

Vendor released new versions

Symantec's 2010 editions of its flagship antimalware consumer software, Norton AntiVirus and Norton Internet Security, include Quoroum, a new type of malware detection and analysis.

Quorum's reputation analysis draws from a knowledge base that includes traditional antivirus signatures; Symantec's existing Sonar technology for behavioural analysis; a real-time database of malware information gleaned from millions of Symantec software users; and cloud-based analysis.

Norton AntiVirus 2010 is the more basic antimalware package for the desktop. Norton Internet Security adds capabilities that include firewall and antiphishing defense, plus Identity Safe for protection and management of personal profile information and passwords.
