Norton Security reports Turbo Tax 2015 installation file as Trojan

I just installed Turbo Tax 2015 via download this morning and after I installed it, Norton identified file TurboTax_Premier_2015_Federal__State_Taxes__Fed_Efile_Tax_Preparation_Software_-_PC_Download.exe as Trojan.Gen and quarantined it.  I was able to restore it, but I don't feel this should have happened in the first place.

Thanks for the post. I'll wait on installing Turbo Tax until they get this fixed. 

I feel doing taxes is a Trojan anyway. LOL

FWIW,  I installed Turbo Tax Deluxe 2015 Federal, State Taxes, Fed Efile Tax Preparation on November 18, 2015 from a download from Intuit (Turbo Tax) and had no detections.

I believe this is a different version (Deluxe vs Premiere).
