Norton Confidential update
Symantec has released a new update to its Norton Confidential for the Macintosh phishing protection toolbar bringing support for Apple's default Mac OS X browser, Safari. The application protects against fraudulent websites, secures important files and identity data, and defends against software vulnerabilities. The first version of the product, which shipped in mid-October, offered protection for Firefox users. The company today said it released an update via the automatic update feature: "Users need only run LiveUpdate and they will receive the new functionality immediately (they will get a message confirming that they now have Safari compatibility)," the company said. "Once the update is installed, if Safari is open, they just need to quit and re-launch Safari. No restart is needed." Norton Confidential is available for $30 in an introductory offer.
