Qwest knows federal IT is mission critical. Which is why we're committed to keeping you up and running, no matter what it takes. We've built networks for agencies across the U.S. government, from the Department of Defense to Energy to Treasury.
Qwest was allegedly the lone holdout, despite threats from the NSA that their refusal to cooperate may jeopardize future government contracts

It is the reply that I got to after directly emailing.
The employee does say there will be an announcement. Email for yourself if you like, I did include the details in a link to symnatecs website.
I am not defending them, I just think asking them directly mght get an answer instead of fearmongering.

Thanks for the quick response. Yes, I searched compressed files and still no joy. Wondering if this is relegated to 2009 Norton products or just the anti-virus program rather than the full suite? I'm running NIS2008.
I received the reply - ********, I don’t have much detail about this issue. I believe that Symantec will be making a public announcement about this file in near future. I do believe that it is a legitimate file delivered by live update. Unfortunately, somebody has chosen to about our Norton Community forums regarding this issue and the remediation for this abuse is having some unintended collateral damage.

after uninstalling it, i had an endless world of pain with the pc. its like they deliberatley make it an impossible task of a clean uninstall.
after seaching google it was clear millions of others were in the same boat!!!
