What does the file "HotFix1.exe" do that was installed on 1/9/23?

A "HotFix" means it's a quick temporary solution to some problem.
The file is found in this path:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Norton AntiVirus\Engine\184.108.40.206\HotfixStage\HotFix1.exe
So what does this file do?

It looks like this was an automatic live update failure.
I just noticed that Norton 360 was not fully booting up - probably a live update failed and it was like this for the last few days.
I did a manual live update, and rebooted, and now norton 360 fully boots up and that file is no longer being run.
