Norton Security Software Riddled with Critical Vulnerabilities

How Google Finds Symantec-Norton Security Holes?

ITechZeus provide online technical support for your Norton products. For support call us

now at our toll-free number +1 800 986 9249. Our technicians are 5+ years experienced

in providing technical support for all Norton products.

Troubles have all over again found Norton Security computer code. In late June,

Google’s Project Zero found vital vulnerabilities within the sever protection systems.

Google declared that: “these vulnerabilities area unit as unhealthy because it gets. They

don’t need any user interaction, they have an effect on the default configuration, and

therefore the computer code runs at the very best privilege levels potential.

In sure cases, on Windows, vulnerable code is even loaded into the kernel, leading to

remote kernel memory corruption. As Symantec use constant core engine across their

entire product, all Symantec and Norton-branded antivirus product area unit full of

these vulnerabilities (Omandy, 2016).”

Norton is Associate in Nursing connected cyber-security firm beneath the umbrella of

Symantec Security. All security services on the market should manage their

vulnerabilities. this is often wherever organizations and services like Google’s Project

Zero are available. Symantec/Norton rent third party laptop coders to hunt out

vulnerabilities in their security system. they\'re conjointly purported to monitor for brand

spanking new releases of third party computer code, look ahead to vulnerability

announcements and distribute updates on these vulnerabilities. Symantec failed to

perform any of those needed responsibilities. In fact, Symantec has been mistreatment

code derived from open supply libraries however haven\'t updated these codes within

the last seven years.


Some of the vulnerabilities in Symantec’s/Norton’s computer code embody however

don\'t seem to be restricted to:

PowerPoint Stream Stack Buffer Overflow

Bloodhound Heuristics


Memory Corruption

Google has long had a relationship and been active within the security analysis

community. so as to seek out vulnerabilities in websites and security computer code

services Google created the Project Zero team. The goal of the team is to seek out

vulnerabilities and report on them so as for the matter to be resolved before somebody

with malicious intent finds these holes. it\'s vital to recollect that corporations like

Symantec and Norton don\'t seem to be delinquent or reneging on their responsibilities.

There’ll continually be holes in security services, that is why corporations rent third party

vulnerability seekers.

In order to seek out the vulnerabilities Google gathers data on Symantec. sometimes

data which will be found on-line, a person with the need will notice this public data.

Project Zero can scour blogs, websites, social media or any supply that will have helpful

data. they\'re searching for clues concerning email addresses and network layout or


After the legal and public data is collected the Project Zero team can scan for open

ports on the target. sure, port numbers can alert Project Zero to vulnerabilities. Services

hear ports, if you\'re able to manipulate the port range than a hacker might use this data

to induce the port to try to something they wished.

Google Project Zero can then use their automatic vulnerability scanner so as to be

alerted to vulnerabilities quicker than manually searching for them. it\'ll sometimes poke

around within the unpatched computer code and testing the version range of the

computer code. Once the vulnerabilities are found the team can begin testing these

Security researchers cannot believe alone on the tools that have already been created if

the goal is to seek out all of the vulnerabilities within the security computer code. it\'s at


now wherever Project Zero team members can manually arrange to “break” into the

computer code. The team members want an in-depth data on however computer code

works so as to avoid for good damaging the client’s computer code.

Once vulnerability is found there\'s a typical course of action Google Project Zero should

adhere to. The team should tell the corporate before informing anybody else.

Successively the corporate asks for a group quantity of your time to repair the

vulnerability before the data is disclosed to the general public.

Symantec and Norton have begun to begin reparation their vulnerabilities in their

cloud-based product and therefore the gift product are patched shortly. However, it\'ll

not take long for criminal hackers to conjointly spot these vulnerabilities and cash in of
