Symantec damaged and repaired!

A lot of reports and press releases pointed us to an "Advisory" posted at eEye that describes a remotely exploitable vulnerability in Symantec Antivirus 10.x and Symantec Client Security 3.x. Symantec responded very quick and posted patches for the Security Advisory SYM06-010. It appears at this time that the patches are manual download and install. We don't know at this point if a product live update will be posted for these patches but for the meantime it is there for manual load. If you have the newest Symantec products it seems to be patching time. Why can't all software products be without exploits. Isn't everybody not searching the exploits or bugs inside products?
