Suspicious Statistical Submission entries in NIS history.

Hello. This morning, I noticed a group of files pending being sent to Norton through Statistical Submission. I did some snooping around and they appear to connected to C:\Windows\Fonts. Here's what they are.

hornb_ttf.

horni_ttf.

hangeb_ttf.

hangez_ttf.

beachexb.ttf

hornz_ttf.

hornr_ttf.

I've never seen it submit anything like this before. Is there a problem here or is this normal? Thanks.

Hi caleb89sw,

Again, submissions are only submissions - they are not malware detections.  New files that appear on  Norton machines are submitted to Symantec routinely.  If a file were known to be malicious or, if a file behaved in a way that made it suspicious, Norton would remove the file from your PC.  Reputation based protection means that Symantec needs to know about all types of fiiles in the wild - safe files that can be trusted, as well as malicious files - so these submissions allow Symantec to keep up with the newest files that are appearing on users' computers.

Ok. Look, I'm sorry for asking so many questions all the time. I'm still a little new to this kind of stuff and a I don't quite understand a lot of these things sometimes. Thanks for helping me out, the same goes tothe others who've helped here. I'll try to take it easy on all the questions in the future. Thanks again! :)

Re: Suspicious Statistical Submission entries in NIS history.

Questions are what we're here for.  No need to apologize or stop asking about things you want to learn about.  Although there are different kinds of statistical submissions, the idea is essentially the same with all of them - they provide feedback to Symantec concerning files of interest, or they provide a check on test signatures that may be in development to replace an existing signature with something more efficient and refined.  While the entries in Norton Community Watch can sometimes sound like a cause for concern, these submissions are not threats - and if anything on your computer were presumed to be a danger, it would be removed instantly.
