  1. Oh my god. I thought this was a joke, but no. Norton is literally creating a crypto mining botnet. What a horrible precedent to set.

  2. I hate using a system which I can't control the AV on, if I could I'd murder Norton from my stuff. Damn licenses…

  3. Norton is unusable these days… over half of its interface is trying to upsell you. So of course, sooner or later, that crypto miner will 'magically' enable itself. Then the apologies, then the announcement its on by default, then the announcement it can't be disabled. Go pound a sock full of broken glass, Norton: Go be a computer security expert and NOTHING ELSE.

  4. Thank you for this eye opener. I think it's a shame that Norton is using this kind of method.

  5. bruh this is a scam there is software which gives you 100% profit on your mining

  6. I was considering switching to kaspersky for some time now, but this move from Norton basically just sealed it.

  7. I agree that even if it is something you want to do, it's not appropriate to bundle with paid security software.

  8. How did anybody at Norton even think this was even remotely a good idea?

  9. Good luck getting that eth out of the wallet without paying a ridiculous gas fee on top of that weakass payout too. I have Norton, I tried it out for a day, and it's like .40 cents a day lol. Would take ages to get a good amount of eth worth even taking out of that wallet. Can't wait to get rid of this, I'll be moving to another platform once the subscription date has passed.

  10. Is it that cold in your flat or are you just paranoid of leaving fingerprints?
    Regarding this clip: I also have nothing against cryptominers, except pushing hardware prices, but my acceptance ends when it comes to software running on my system that I have no benefit of or that I'm not even aware of. Software should be a piece of code that serves your personal needs. Everything else is just abusive and makes you the product. That might be ok if I'm aware of that fact so I can make a decision for myself, like for so called free software versions. I guess we all remember the Avast "scandal" when it became public that they were selling their customers personal data. But it's a complete different story when it comes to paid or commercial software.
    I don't know of anybody who would accept anything similar in real life. Imagine to buy a fridge, but it comes with a guy who is using your landline for his own business and to make profit of it.

  11. Im literally cancelling my membership and completely uninstalling it as i write this comment. Time to switch to kaspersky

  12. So if I have 4gb graphics card , Norton won't crypto mine ? It so minimum 6gb graphics card right? I'm safe then?
