Symantec learns about Streisand effect

So it seems that Symantec is making one of those Epic Stupid decisions that just cant be replicated outside of an ostrich putting its head in the sand.

Seems a file named Pifts.exe has been trying to phone home for some folks and they traced it back to Symantec. Evidently Symantec views Pifts.exe as some dirty little secret and deleted the posts and accounts that these people made in Symantec's forums..

Silly rabbit, when you try to hide something on the internet it only spreads like wildfire. Now just wait for the people writing trojans malware and spyware to create botnets just to get people who are looking for info on this program.

Good Job Symantec!
