How to add a new entry to the Intrusion Signatures

I would like to add a new entry in the Settings > Firewall > Intrusion and Browser Protection > Intrusion Signatures.

Specifically, I would like to add and entry to support:  System Infected:  Miner.Bitcoinminer Activity 6

The list already supports many entries for System Infected:  Miner.Bitcoinminer Activity <n>, where <n> is an integer, but dues not include the integer 6.  I need that entry form my current use.

Any suggestions on how I can add this?  Or must Norton add this themselves?

Re: How to add a new entry to the Intrusion Signatures

Intrusion Prevention detects and blocks attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in the operating system or installed programs and applications.  You cannot add a signature yourself because you would need actual samples of the attack code to create a signature, not just a name.  Norton is actually pretty good about getting signatures pushed out quickly for new threats.  Often, by the time you read about them, Norton has already released a signature.
