Check Your Antivirus For Updates To Keep You Protected

The past week saw an issue with Symantec and Norton antivirus users were they were exposed to a bad vulnerability that Google described as ” bad as it gets “.

Google: Symantec antivirus flaws are ‘as bad as it gets’

The advise was to make sure you updated ” manually ” to make sure you are protected.

However this again shows it is YOUR actions that count and stop relying on your antivirus to stay protected.

I have also seen plenty of antivirus products stop working so make sure you manually check your antivirus to make sure it is updating and working.

For Windows 10 users , windows will turn on Defender if your antivirus stops working or if your subscription has expired which is good to know.
