Norton, I am a paid customer with an active subscription and I have been a paid member for years now. So please consider my suggestion.
Please provide a service for your paying customers that tests our (the customers) network/router externally for hacking vulnerabilities.
With recent news of Russia, China and other countries probing, hacking and attacking all US networks (both home routers and others) a service like this would be vital. An ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure.
"The United States Computer Readiness Team (US-CERT), an organization within the Department of Homeland Security responsible for analyzing and responding to cyber threats, has published a warning about the exploitation of network devices, including routers, by a state-sponsored attack group."
Here is another article about how our routers of us home users are being targeted and under potential attack.
The service/feature I am requesting would be a service similar to "Nessus" by Tenable. Unfortunately, that service is over $1,000 per year. The service I am requesting you implement would not be simple port scans like some websites offer. I am talking about an extensive service that tries to probe every hole and hack every crannie on ones home router. Things like (but not limited too) "Exploit router backdoor access", "webremote command execution via shellscript", "exploit netcore router backdoor access" and on and on. As I said, every known exploit and nook and crannie.
A service like what I am requesting will help your paying customers with intrusion prevention and exploit protection, notifying them that even if they fully updated their router, they may need another newer/different router or another form of protection. Right now, customers are left guessing and hoping that their fully patched software, AV, and router is sufficient. Guessing, crossing fingers and hoping is not a good thing and should not have to happen. While Norton AV is a great product for protecting the PC, great protection is needed before it even gets to that point.
I realize your router, "Norton Core" may help to a degree with this, but not all of your paying customers have this router nor will everyone agree to buy this router. There will be millions that chose not to. However, if vulnerabilities are found and shown to the user of their current router and how these vulnerabilities would be protected with Norton core, in addition to helping all your paying customers be more secure, this may be a great way to promote an upgrade to Norton Core as well.
Please provide peace of mind to us paying customers and provide a service that externally tries to hack/test our home networks for vulnerabilities, so that when these vulnerabilities are found, us customers can make the necessarily adjustments/improvements.
Thank you Norton developers
