install_flash player file unsafe?

Hello. Earlier today, while I was doing a full system scan with norton, I noticed there was a Statistical Submission concerning an adobe flash file. Here what it said.

I did some looking around and I found 3 entries that had this file name: install_flashplayer11x32ax_gtbd_chrd_dn_aih. 2 of them seems legit (they had a digital signiture and everything) but one I was concerned about. It required administator access (I'm not an admin) and when I tried to access it without admin privledges, it said it wasn't a valid Win32 application. Is any of this serious? Thanks.

Re: install_flash player file unsafe?

Hello caleb89sw,

I would not advise disabling Community Watch.  It is not uncommon for Norton to select known applications and processes to submit them for analysis.  It merely means these were items of interest and do not indicate any risks.  By way of example, my Community Watch History shows a statistical submission of my recent Java update.

From the help section: “Norton Community Watch improves user security and product functionality. In addition, it helps Symantec to analyze the execution, schedule, and efficiency of Norton-specific tasks and settings on your computer.”  and "You should participate in Norton Community Watch submissions to provide valuable contribution to the entire community that uses Norton security products."

By participating in Community Watch, you are helping to keep all Norton users safer.

Hope that helps!
