Symantec triggers on World of Warcraft update

Another AV false positive affects gamers this time instead of companies. This time its from Symantec and it flags update files created by World of Warcraft. Doubt we'll hear much about this in the mainstream press, but we'll see commentary in the InfoSec circles.

Symantec triggers on World of Warcraft update: "We have had a couple of reports over the last 24 hour of users experiencing issues with Symantec anti-virus products triggering on scan.dll.new which is a component of World of Warcraft. "
