Crypto Miner in Norton Antivirus, Why I care and you SHOULD too



Published
Norton Antivirus introduced a new "feature" that allows endusers to enable cryptocurrency ethereum mining. While on the surface, this doesn't seem awful though as you pull back the layers it becomes worse and worse. It undermines the trust of user's relying on the endpoint protection software by ultimately exploiting that trust and charging HUGE fees which will likely result in a loss of money. When trust is so important in an industry of misinformation, I am amazed this is the direction Norton took; maybe just a last ditch effort to try to save what I believe is dying software.

Thanks for watching and Hack on!
