Symantec and McAfee Fined Over Unauthorised Renewals

As reported yesterday in the Brisbane Times, both Symantec and McAfee have had to get their shit together and stop making unauthorised credit card transactions for customers who have not requested to renew their antivirus subscriptions. They were each fined US$375,000 and were required to allow customers an easy opt-out from renewal.

Do I need to say any more? :)
