I read what Symantec have said about Free Anti Virus products. This kind of misinformation is just unacceptable from companies like Symantec! Enough is Enough…You can’t mislead end users with blatant lies like this!
If Symantec truly believes what they preach to the media then they will have no problem taking this challenge:
To Symantec: Comodo openly challenges you to an independent test to see which product can protect users better. A $$$ Norton product or totally Free Comodo!
Just come and let us know, PM me, Email me, whatever method you want whenever you want. Our respective companies will choose a mutually agreeable independent testing organisation to test which product can “Protect” the end user better.
Eagerly awaiting your answer.
PS: Our forums users: I would appreciate if you alerted Symantec to this post just in case they “miss” it This way they can’t claim they never received the challange

The misinformation continues…
Here is what Symantec said in USA Today, (2010-09-22) (thats, today )
“Freeware vendors have created a false perception that free, basic security is enough to protect you from today’s online threats,” says Janice Chaffin, president of Symantec’s consumer business unit. “The reality is, free is not enough. It’s like wearing a light windbreaker in a snowstorm.”
Symantec, when will you stop scare mongering end users to make them pay money to you? This strategy you follow is no different than what FAKE AV products do. They too scare the users to get them fork out, and you do that too! Shame on you!
This is not the first time we are hearing this type of scare mongering from Symantec, so I can only assume this is the company policy being executed by its employees!
