A reader has reported to us that he is unable to access AOL and wondered why AOL blames on Symantec after calling up AOL. If you are not able to connect to AOL after running Symantec LiveUpdate, it could be caused by one of Symantec intrusion detection signature that was included in the March 15 LiveUpdate.

Apparently, the update incorrectly detected part of the AOL connection as a potential risk and resulted in blocking access to AOL servers. Symantec has corrected the problem with a new update. If you have this problem, you may want to check out the details at Symantec website.

Thanks to Johannes for checking this out.
