Symantec has unveiled new versions of its Norton security products--beefing up some of the real-time and automated features--and will release them in the next few weeks.

Being updated are Norton AntiVirus, Personal Firewall, and AntiSpam, all of which will be bundled in the upcoming Norton Internet Security 2005. Norton AntiVirus will ship separately in August, with the remaining applications and the suite to follow in mid-September.

Norton AntiVirus 2005 now includes a 30-second QuickScan, which runs during AntiVirus's LiveUpdate automatic software update and checks for active viruses in system memory and other critical areas. More significantly, perhaps, Norton AntiVirus 2005 supplements traditional e-mail virus protection with new Internet Worm Protection to combat threats that automatically scan IP addresses for open ports.

The third security suite application, Norton AntiSpam 2005, aims to protect users against fraudulent or "spoofed" e-mail messages, which do not reflect the return address of the actual sender. It can also filter messages by foreign language.
