What is Norton 360/ Symantec doing about W32/Agent.VEFO!tr trojan virus?

What is Norton 360/ Symantec doing about W32/Agent.VEFO!tr trojan virus?

 

Luckily my firewall caught the outgoing from this but the current set of Norton 360 definitions do not locate the infected file on my computer.

 

The only info I could find is here:

A search of the Norton/ Symantec site for VEFO returns no results.

Welcome,
We may have to wait for the staff to return to the office to get a response to that question.

Hi jimkress,

 

What  information did the firewall provide about what it blocked?  What firewall and AV are you using?

I’m using a Fortigate 60C hardware firewall and Norton 360 AV.  I also have Malwarebytes installed.

Any update on status?  I am quite concerned about this trojan.

If Norton IPS did not alert to a malicious outbound connection, and scans with Norton and Malwarebytes' fail to find the Trojan, it could possibly be a false positive.  I see that new Fortinet defs were released on December 8.  What did the alert you received actually say?
