do not as of this writing have Norton 188.8.131.52 Current version is 184.108.40.206 if that means anything
Here is the email /notice rec'd yesterday from Norton: (red color was from the email ) many thanks in advance ...edythe
United States Department of Homeland Security, regarding a vulnerability in Java. Java is both a language and a platform to run websites and programs used by many computer users, both on the PC and Mac operating systems. This vulnerability leaves millions of computers open to malware attacks and can lure online traffic to virus-infected websites. Rest assured, because you have a Norton security software product installed on your computer, you’re protected against the Java bug (CVE-2013-0422), as long as you have not disabled the automatic updates feature. We also recommend that you apply Oracle’s recently released security patch and make sure you are running the most updated version of Java.
Thank you for being a valued Norton customer.
