Simple IE crash and Symantec Anti-Virus

I guess most of you know that following simple HTML code will crash IE [along with your desktop shell ;-)]. Put each line inside "<" and ">".

html
form
input type crash
/form
/html

But an interesting thing I found is that once you try to create a HTML file with this code Symantec Antivirus real time protection detects it and quarantines the file. It is good to know that some products are worth for the money you spend on them unlike M$ products. There is a way to bypass Symantec, replace the word crash with some random word then Symantec doesn't catch but your IE still goes for a spin.

I haven't tested with SP2 of Windows XP but with SP1 it crashes. I don't think any one got SP2 already. Also this bug is very very old its been there from 1999 or so. I hope they have fixed it in SP2 update.
