I know I am not the best typist or speller...
But does anybody know who to report typographical errors in documentation or the software?

Point in question -
NOM/Alerts/Select Condition
for High Frozen Media -
Description
"Action is taken if, Number of frozed medias exceeds predefined threshold value."

Frozed is not a word - froze or frozen -  not frozed

I don't have a formal method for reporting typos yet, but I'll email the writer and make sure it is fixed ASAP.

Thanks for taking the time to note this!

I double checked and I believe this is already fixed in 6.5.4. What version did you discover it in?

6.5.3 - nice to see that it has been fixed already.

funny thing is I did a search here on Connect for frozed - found it used 3 times in posts.....

I don't have to know how to spell....I work on Unix.

The easiest way to get these fixed is to go through your Symantec Account manager and tell them to report it to the product management

The other way is to put it on the forum and keep bugging the Symantec people on the forums until they tell you that it is being addressed.

But the account manager is the official way

Q2. Purchasing goods or services on the Internet is safe, as long as you are connected to a Web site that supports secure transactions.
True False

A2. False. Even people who do not shop or bank online can be affected by cybercrime. All it takes is one visit to a hostile website, or even a benign website with an infected advertisement, and a machine can be infected with a crimeware program such as a bot or Trojan horse.

the question asked was  if purchasing goods from a secure website was safe.................

the answer was irrelevant to the question since the question asked about "purchasing goods".

A2. False. Even people who do not shop or bank online can be affected by cybercrime. All it takes is one visit to a hostile website, or even a benign website with an infected advertisement, and a machine can be infected with a crimeware program such as a bot or Trojan horse.

TIP: Use secure transactions when transferring sensitive information and make sure you are dealing with a reputable company.

what is the sense in asking ppl about shopping online and then tell them that they got the answer wrong "because even ppl that DON'T shop online are potential victims

it only asked about shopping on a secure site not going to some porn site infected with some malware, spyware, or virus.
