Symantec doubles down on consumer security by buying LifeLock

Re: Identity theft protection snakeoil

The best (worst) part of Lifelock's CEO SSN stunt was the one person they managed to catch using the stolen number (no preventative value, apparently) was a desperate mentally disabled man who possibly didn't even realize that it was wrong to use this freely offered SSN. Then their lawyers coerced him on video into signing a confession he certainly was incapable of understanding. The police did a collective facepalm and said they couldn't prosecute thanks to Lifelock sticking their dick into the pudding.

Meanwhile, Symantec keeps looking for new opportunities to turn uselessness into an actual product standard.
