Is Norton Internet Security Affected by Reported Norton Software Hack

Is Norton Internet Security effected by the recent Norton software hack as reported in the news? Should I remove Norton Internet Security and replace with an alternate protection software?

In my opinion, no.  What was hacked was a 6 year old enterprise product.  I am using the current commercial product (NIS 2012).  I have no concern and don't plan on replacing Norton unless I hear different news.

Hi geraldmbrennan:

 

Welcome to to the Norton Community!

 

Have no fears my friend. :smileyhappy:

 

I feel that this link will clear your mind of worries. Personally, I'm more concerned about the Zappos breach. :smileywink:

 

Enjoy the product!

 

Best,

(Reuters) - Symantec Corp took the rare step of advising customers to stop using one of its products, saying its pcAnywhere software for accessing remote PCs is at increased risk of getting hacked after blueprints of that software were stolen.
