October 05, Symantec — Symantec Norton Anti−Virus fails to scan files named
with MS DOS device names. Symantec Norton AntiVirus consumer products do not
effectively scan files with MS−DOS reserved device names once the file is
resident on a user's system. A remote user can create a file that will not be
detected by the application. The vendor has issued a fix for Symantec Norton
Anti−Virus 2004, available via LiveUpdate. Fixes for other supported versions
will be available through LiveUpdate at a later date.
