What is Symantec Security Check?

Symantec Security Scan is a free PC threat scanner from Symantec Corporation. The software is accessed through the Symantec website and can be launched from there. This is not software that the user needs to install before it can be utilized.

The system needs to be installed with Internet Explorer 5 or up, or the latest AOL with ActiveX and scripting before the user can run the software’s features. Without the IE or AOL specifics mentioned, additional security checks may not run properly.

Symantec Security Scan will check the security of the user’s system to see if it allows unauthorized access via the Internet. This type of system scan will determine if the system is vulnerable to hackers. In conjunction with this, the software will also check vulnerabilities on threats to identity theft.

The program also scans for viruses, Trojans and other online threats that could potentially enter the computer system. Lastly, if the user has an antivirus program installed, Symantec Security Scan will check if the AV is still updated.

Download Symantec Security Check from the developer does not provide software hosting. We send you directly to the developer's site, to make sure you download the latest, original version of the program.
