  4. Use caution when opening email attachments
    Email attachments are a common tool for attackers because forwarding email is so simple. Users often open attachments that appear to come from someone they know or an organization they do business with. Almost any type of file can be attached to an email message, so attackers have more freedom with the types of viruses they can send. If your email program includes an option to automatically download email attachments, DON'T take it. Doing so could immediately expose your computer to any viruses included in the email attachments.

    Symantec says that , this talk was in fact between the hacker and law enforcement officials posing as a Symantec employee. - http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/02/07/us-symantec-hackers-idUSTRE8160KB20120207

    Nonetheless, it is hard to tell the cops from the criminals sometimes. "Protect and serve", that is supposed to be the gist, but it is usually about money and politics, or creating an image.

    3 things,

    1: You shouldn't be using pc anywhere, that was very popular over 5 years ago there are many free options to use now whether it be windows own rdp or tools like citrix logmein and teamviewer to name a few
    2: If the code is indeed the older code it shouldn't have any effect since there was a code re-write for the new AV's that use sonar that replaced TruScan.
    3: Never rely solely on AV for security, take a look at the my setup section of the forum and you will find lots of great tools to secure your machine
