Today a report was made of a spyware package which was digitally signed. The package dropped 2 dlls on the pc called kicom.dll and kxcom.dll. A delivery method has not been identified yet.

This is not new, it was published in February.
And an unconfirmed report that Norton Internet Security 4.0 2002, 2003 & 2004 for Windows has added a new feature which pre-scans the inline html images prior to writing the images to the temp directory and displaying them in the web-browser. This effort is to try to identify web borne worms and viruses. The unfortunate side effect is that pages load incredibly slowly. The report stated that Verizon's page took over 3 minutes to load with the scanner and under 3 seconds without it. This could result in users disabling their firewalls which is not a good thing.
