Symantec Launches Internet Security Web Site

Symantec Corp. announced the launch of a new Web site designed for Internet security designed to give home users information about their individual Internet security needs. The site features Symantec Security Check, a Web-based tool to evaluate potential online security threats and recommended solutions.

Symantec Security Check determines whether the PC is susceptible to hackers, viruses, and privacy threats, and provides recommendations for protection. The site provides detailed descriptions of online security threats to users with broadband connections, and advises steps that can be taken to reduce the threats.

Symantec Security Check is Web-based and utilizes several software scanners to hunt for vulnerabilities. It searches for open ports, open file-sharing access, as well as viruses and Trojan horses. The tool also examines whether the browser contains any stored personal information.

The site is located at www.symantec.com/securitycheck.

Contact Symantec, (310) 449-5446, www.symantec.com.
