    Further to my report regarding the 'Norton Anti' Virus, I have been informed by a colleague of a new variant with a lethal payload.

    When attempting to renew your subscription to this virus, you discover that you don't actually exist. This, I understand is because if you live in the UK, you live in a County, rather than a State. This renders you a non-person, and unable to renew your subscription.

    My colleague contacted his credit card company to ask them if they could talk some sense into Symantec (The authors of the virus). He would have spoken to their tech support, but they want 29 euros to talk to you.

    Surprise, surprise. Symantec have taken four subscription charges from his credit card account in two days!!!! Beware!!!!!

    One last, and possibly most damning fact: The four amounts were different!!!!

    Be Warned!!!(n)
