As part of the Windows Live services that Microsoft touted Tuesday, the Redmond, Wash.-based developer rolled out a beta version of a free Web service that scans for and removes viruses, removes unnecessary files from the hard drive, and schedules a disk defragmentation. Some users may be uneasy about using the service, however, since by default the virus scanner transmits information about the PC and its applications to Microsoft.
Windows Live Safety Center is a free, albeit advertising-supported site. It takes its

On Tuesday, the security vendor reported GAAP net loss for its fiscal second quarter was $251.3 million, or 21 cents per share, owing primarily to the write-off of $284 million in expenses associated with the Veritas purchase. In the same quarter last year, Symantec posted a net profit of $135.6 million.

GAAP revenue for the quarter was $1.056 billion and non-GAAP revenue was $1.192 billion.

Microsoft's patching problems resurfaced again when a researcher published a paper last week detailing how the Redmond, Wash.-based developer failed to really fix a vulnerability disclosed in April 2005.

The goof, claimed security researcher Cesar Cerrudo, chief executive of Argeniss Information Security, forced Microsoft to release another security bulletin in October.

Cerrudo published his paper, "Story of a dumb patch," with details of how Microsoft slapped a Band-Aid on a bug rather than really plug the vulnerability outlined in MS05-018,

Passwords that limit access to Oracle databases can be cracked with off-the-shelf hardware, a pair of security researchers claimed in a recently published paper.

The researchers, Joshua Wright of the SANS Institute and Carlos Cid, of the University of London, said that the password algorithm Oracle uses is weak -- Oracle doesn't preserve the case of the password, for example -- and provides attackers several ways to break into databases.

"An adversary with limited resources can mount an attack that

A worm spreading through America Online's Instant Messenger (AIM) network carries a dangerous rootkit, code designed to hide a hacker's work from anti-virus scanners, a security firm warned Friday.

Sdbot.add, said instant messaging security vendor FaceTime, includes the "lockx.exe" rootkit.

Rootkits are among the most dangerous types of malware, since they hide illegitimate processes and files, and can trick logging functions into not recording malicious activity. And they're becoming more common, say some experts. According to Moscow-based anti-virus developer Kaspersky
