    So, Symantic looks for ways to defeat systems, provides the roadmap for others who probably would not have found it themselves, they create malware using it, Symantic sells us the software to combat it. These jerks have a nice thing going. It would seem like we need a law (as much as I hate new laws) making it a felony to provide enabling technology used for developing and/or distribution of malware.

    I hope that Apple continues to work to tighten security so that nothing gets installed without at least prompting the user.
