Does Norton Protect against PDF exploits?

I know that PDF format has to do with ADOBE and they are responsible for making sure their product is secure. But does Norton also have some protection against a PDF exploit?

Also, if one goes to a website and it is in PDF format, but there is no content shown, would that mean that the exploit was not allowed to load?

Yes, Norton has updated definitions with attack signatures for different types of Adobe exploits. You can find those in the following link:

Hi Calls

Also please make sure you have the latest Adobe Reader and delete the older ones you have.

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Norton Core Security Plus 22.17.3.50 Core Firmware 282 I E 11 Chrome latest version.

Re: Does Norton Protect against PDF exploits?

thanks all. I do have reader 9.3. Was just curious because I have read what seems to be that Norton even takes care of the failings from other providers such as adobe. Norton gets in there right away to fix the problem until , like in the case ADOBE finally get around to it.

Thanks Norton/Symantec for being at the forefront of protecting us, even when it is not really your job. the other entities like ADOBE should be paying you  for protecting against their failings
