Mysterious code appears in web pages.

P: n/a
Hi There:

All of a sudden the below javascript code appears on many of my web
pages. No one else sees it from their browser. I only see it in IE and
Netscape by looking at the source code. When I download the file to my
hard drive the code vanishes. It appears only when I look at it online
from my browsers. Any ideas?
<!doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en">
<html>
<head>
<script language="JavaScript">
<!--

function SymError()
{
return true;
}

window.onerror = SymError;

var SymRealWinOpen = window.open;

function SymWinOpen(url, name, attributes)
{
return (new Object());
}

window.open = SymWinOpen;

//-->
</script>
</head>
<body background="../../MARBL03M.jpg" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0"
marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">

</body>

<script language="JavaScript">
<!--

window.open = SymRealWinOpen;

//-->
</script>

</html>

A Google search for "SymWinOpen" revealed:

http://archives.neohapsis.com/archiv...3-08/0051.html

with the following explanation:

"this crap ist inserted by the norton firewall 2003.
the SymWinOpen is there only if the ad blocker is turned on, the
SymError cannot be turned of w/o turning off the firewall".
