Symantec Internet Threat Meter on your PC

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 19-Jul-2007 11:13

Here is a tip: you can have the Symantec Internet Threat Meter on your PC, free from Symantec. It's a Yahoo! Widget that will run on your Windows XP or Mac PC (what, no Windows Vista Sidebar Gadget yet?).

If you don't want to install Yahoo! Widgets (previously known as Konfabulator) then you can always visit the Symantec Security Response page for updates.

I just read on their Security Response Blog that their ITM system is being update, and it looks good.

Now, I don't run Symantec software anymore. A lot of people complain it's bloated, hard to uninstall, sometimes requires reinstallation because it loses its configuration, and it may be all true.

But the information they are giving away for free is interesting. So go check it out.
