Symantec Threat Monitor Sceensaver


Hey, interesting one. I’m not a fan of screensavers , I just use whatever that’s built-in . But for the fan it seems to be an awesome information.Read it on.

This free screensaver keeps you up-to-date on the threat landscape using a feed  from Symantec’s DeepSight monitoring service. The ThreatCon rating in the screensaver also lets you know the current danger level of the Internet based on network incident and malicious code activity. The screensaver regularly updates itself when you are connected to the Internet.

Intel Pentium II 450Mhz, AMD Athlon 600Mhz or faster processor (or equivalent)

Nice one.Good idea but I don’t think Symantec are first to come up with this idea.This is not a live feed. There is an 8-12 hour delay in the threat information displayed in this screensaver.If you believe in security from every nook and corner then it is for you.
