Re: KRACK virus

Hi hammock1965:

Did you receive some sort of pop-up advertisement or e-mail from Norton advertising Norton WiFi Privacy?  There's an article in the Emerging Threats section of the Symantec Security Center titled What you need to do about the WPA2 Wi-Fi network vulnerability that looks like a security advisory at first glance but turns out to be nothing more than a product advertisement encouraging users to purchase a subscription for Norton WiFi Privacy.  This Symantec Security Center article also doesn't mention that Microsoft released security updates to patch the KRACK vulnerability on 10-Oct-2017 with their October 2017 Patch Tuesday updates (see the bleepingcomputer's List of Firmware & Driver Updates for KRACK WPA2 Vulnerability and the Microsoft Security Advisory at https://portal.msrc.microsoft.com/en-US/security-guidance/advisory/CVE-2017-13080).

If you're seeing Norton pop-up ads on your desktop please see bullwinkle2's comment in the thread The Character of Your Service as well as Mount RushRob's Disable Pop Up Tray Marketing Notifications.  Many Norton users have disabled Special Offer Notifications (Settings | Advanced Settings | Special Offer Notifications) to try and minimize this type of intrusive pop-up advertising.

Re: KRACK virus

Hi hammock1965:

Symantec employee Dave_Coleman posted the following yesterday in Laurie Spencer's thread Fake Norton Email:

"Symantec DID send an email today concerning KRACK with a “Norton WiFi privacy” link at the bottom that inadvertently went to the buy.norton.com billing page. It is legitimate"

In addition to disabling Special Offer Notifications (Settings | Advanced Settings | Special Offer Notifications) in my Norton product to prevent pop-up ads on my Windows desktop, I also logged into my Norton Account at https://my.norton.com/account/home, clicked the Personal Information tab, scrolled down to Email Preferences and disable the option to Email me product updates, offers and security newsletters.  I did that a few months ago and that seems to have stopped these constant and unwanted e-mail advertisements from appearing in my Inbox.

Re: KRACK virus

Hello Freddles

All of those points you listed would be the same items that NIS has. I don't know how effective they would be in comparison to your Norton NIS,

Thanks.
