Norton 360 - Malware

Hey Guys. Does Norton 360 remove Malware such as RATs (Remote Administrative Tools) ?

 

Also.. Is MalwareBytes a safe system to use?

Hi TuRmoiLxx,

 

From these links,

it looks like signatures for RATs are created by symantec and N360 should be protecting you against RATs.

Re: Norton 360 - Malware

Regarding your question on malwarebytes --- I do not use malwarebytes.. but have seen several contributors on this forum recommending it. You could look at the following threads:
