Wifi Network Compromised bug?

Tonight I started getting pop up message from NMS that both of my wifi networks were compromised due to a man in the middle attack.  Some searching led me to older posts where this seemed to be a common problem.  I think Norton reported that it was fixed but it is not.  Both of my networks are WPA2 and secured- live chat confirmed it was a bug/false positive.  Anyone else currently seeing this issue? How do I get the message to go away?  I have an iphone in case it matters.  Also, is there a way to report bugs like this? thanks!

JG580. Restart your device and run another scan.

Re: Wifi Network Compromised bug?

Just to clarify. You actually have the newer Norton Security for iOS, NSiOS, installed on your iPhone. The older NMS that was available for iOS did not have any malware, or network protection. 

The previous network detection you mention was for Android devices and the panic it caused was fixed within 7 hours by engineers actually working overnight to fix that problem.

What version of iOS and NSiOS is on your device?

How long have you been using NSiOS? 

Are Both your networks at home, or elsewhere?

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