Symantec is Sorry

symantec-sorry.pngSome of you may know about the incident with Norton Antivirus that occurred in China last month. Apparently, a routine update for Norton Antivirus deleted some critical system files, thus crashing about 50.000 PCs. Luckily for the rest of the world, only computers running the Chinese version of Windows XP were affected. Symantec, the world’s largest security software provider, announced on Monday a compensation package for Chinese users whose computers have been affected. They will have the period of validity for the anti-virus software extended by 12 months, plus free data backup and restoration software and enterprise users will get permits to use Ghost Solution Suite. That’s Symantec’s way of saying they’re sorry. And the lawsuits… I guess that’s just some Chinese people’s way of saying “screw you!”.
