Recently started receiving Heur.AdvML.B Auto-Protect exceptions where the indication for the issue is the C++ boost library use of zstd.exe. The error is only reported when testing applications using the Visual Studio debug environment (far as I can tell). I have scanned all of the zstd.exe files located in the boost vcpkg deployment without any Norton findings reported (scan now/file Insight).
I assume this is a false positive indication and can be ignored.
