Norton 360 antivirus comes bundled with malware

| The TL;DR is that yes, Norton does install a crypto miner with its software, without making that clear in the initial setup process.

| From reading user posts on the Norton Crypto community forum, it seems some longtime Norton customers were horrified at the prospect of their antivirus product installing coin-mining software, regardless of whether the mining service was turned off by default. "How on Earth could anyone at Norton think that adding crypto mining within a security product would be a good thing?," reads a Dec. 28 thread titled "Absolutely furious."


| "Norton should be DETECTING and killing off crypto mining hijacking, not installing their own," the post reads....

"Norton is pretty much amplifying energy consumption worldwide, costing their customers more in electricity use than the customer makes on the mining, yet allowing Norton to make a ton of profit," tweeted security researcher Chris Vickery. "It's disgusting, gross, and brand-suicide."

Nah, it's just some dimwit with a substantially fragile ego. He's literally unable to cope with personal criticism or insults of any kind and has been acting like this before.

I will never understand why the most fragile of people are the ones who tend to start shit-flinging when they're the ones who are the least capable of handling it lol.
