Can N360 pop up and recommend the use of Norton Power Eraser?
I was uploading a video to YouTube when suddenly a Norton 'Security Request' appeared. It said something along the lines of 'detecting suspicious amount of outbound traffic and recommends running NPE' I pressed ok. The usual "allow this program to make changes to your pc" prompt came up and I allowed it. Power Eraser run (without restarting the computer...) and said no threats were found. I thought it was just the YouTube video. Much later Norton blocked an intrusion from 'curlmyip.com' and when looking through my security history it turned out that this site had apparently been trying to access files on my computer such as dllhost, svchost and many others, INCLUDING NPE. I think this intrusion was also named "System Infected: Outbound Command/Control traffic" although it may be something slightly different. Is this ok? Can Norton do this? I did a full system scan and another NPE scan and it says there were no threats found. Please don't send me to any websites or tell me to download programs unless it is extremely necessary. My OS is Windows 10, the newest updates were installed when I did the manual NPE scan and my browser is Google Chrome. I use Java but haven't updated yet, and I suspect this may be part of the issue. Thank You :)
