In the constant battle to stay ahead of the game when it comes to viruses and spyware sometimes you can be overwhelmed with the amount of new threats that come out on almost a constant basis. It can be hard to keep track of all the threats and to find out what viruses are coming out when and how they can affect your computer.

Symantec (makers of Norton AntiVirus) offer a free online service called Threat Explorer to make keeping track of the latest viruses easier. You can find out about current threats so you can stay one step ahead of them.

Symantec's Threat Explorer is a resource for daily, accurate and up to date information on the latest threats, risks and vulnerabilities. It is broken down into several categories including threats, risks, vulnerabilities and it even has a search feature.


Once you go to the Threat Explorer website you will be able to navigate around the categories to find helpful information about the latest virus and spyware threats.

You can view by the latest threats, all threats, risks, vulnerabilities, and an alphabetical listing of threats. You can also search by keywords to find the information you are looking for.

It shows the date the virus was detected and the date it was protected against assuming you are using one of Symantec's antivirus programs.

You can also view the latest known spyware, adware, hoaxes and other useful information using the Risks tab.

The Vulnerabilities tab shows weaknesses in computer operating systems and other software that you need to be aware of that may affect your computer's or network’s security.
