One of the keys to keeping a small business up and running is protecting critical information safe from potential spyware, malware and spam threats. Small businesses need an easy, reliable, cost-effective way to make sure their important data is secure and available. In today’s environment of exponential data growth and more sophisticated threats, protection requires more than just antivirus.

Security threats are increasing in complexity and number, and many are now designed to target specific information while also evading detection by a single security mechanism such as antivirus. And many of today’s attacks do not discriminate based on the size of the company. In addition to this the volume of information small businesses must protect continues to expand.

A multi-faceted suite that provides protection and backup and recovery capabilities will allow small businesses to protect the information that drives their businesses.

Current malware...

When ever there is problem with the liveudpate not downloading the defnintions and you come across the error codes (e.g LU1835) which might not mean any thing to you, well below is the information which will help you to determine what exactly those numbers means.

1800 The operation was successful or the patch installed successful
1801 The user pressed the Cancel button or some other process (callback) told LiveUpdate to Cancel.
1802 COM Initialization failed (CoInitialize() function comes back as failed.) - We display a Windows Message Box at the start of LiveUpdate processing, before we create LuComServer.exe and before we create the normal UI.
1803 Our generic error code that we use when we don't know what happened or we don't try to get any extended error information.
1804 We didn't have enough system memory available to declare some object.

Direct Agents, a New York city-based advertising agency with 40 employees, is in a small majority of SMBs that have implemented an effective security system. An April 2009 Symantec survey on the storage and security in small and mid-sized businesses found that while SMBs are familiar with cyber risks and have clearly defined goals for security and storage, a surprisingly high number (33%) have yet to take even the most basic steps towards protecting their businesses, such as implementing antivirus or backing up their data.

As an advertising agency focused on interactive, online media, Direct Agents employees spend their workdays visiting websites and reading email that other companies might consider suspect. For that reason, protection at Direct Agents needs to occur at each individual computer. Because the company...

Hi Team,

Although we are fortunate to have generous gurus in the field of Symantec AV, still many of us here in this forum needs additional support to master our trade, IT Security.
We need additional information and data that would satisfy our constant thirst for knowledge.
I felt that a blog where we could put all Symantec videos, wether trainings or interviews from the masters could help us to accomplish this feat.

Let's use this blog to help others gain more thru learning.
Being a new member in this forum, This helped me to gain a third of what I know about Symantec through the generous thoughs of our fellow members and advisers.
I also notice that many members in Symantec Connect requests for learning videos.
Why not have a blog that links to them.
Let me start by including this link in the blog.

Monitoring for virus coming from the Internet would really help in preventing infections, at least on the entry-point where a client accesses a malicious website.
My first step would be to get the reports from the SAV or SEP reporter. The file would contain information on the infection particularly the path where the infection was detected.
Internet files would be stored in C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

Take note of the computer name, the username, and the time of infection.

I'm using Internet Explorer History Viewer and checking the remote PCs visited sites (assuming that the user hasn't yet deleted the history) and cross checking the sites visited at the time of infection.
The application shows the history in html table format so it's easy to see the sites visited.

I also use Norton Safe Web to get additional details on the website that was visited....

I would believe that the first step to resolving a LiveUpdate issue is to upgrade it to the latest version using this link:

I would like to know people's thoughts on this. The idea is to not spend 15 minutes troubleshooting the issue, since the update may resolve it to being with. Besides, having the latest version of LiveUpdate will prevent any future errors from occuring.
