Sleaze meet Slime. Symantec has a bad reputation for garbage products while LifeLock has been deservedly in and out of trouble with the ferals. May be the marriage of Sleaze and Slime will lead to the death of both.

AV has always been mostly reactive rather than proactive by design. The problem for software vendors is the underlying market is mature so sales growth comes from mostly getting customers from your competitors.
