Does Norton Security for MAC scan for Windows virus'?

Wondering if the virus definitions for Norton for MAC will pick up viruses and malware in files that are for Windows computers. For example, I download a program on my MAC that is meant for a Windows computer... will the norton scan on a mac identify windows based virus' on that downloaded program?

You can download the eicar test files from http://www.eicar.org/85-0-Download.html

Then you can see if your MAC scan will detect it.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Norton Password Manager data.

I know Quads has said that all products use the same virus definitions, so if we download android malware on to Windows it will be detected.
