Norton360 Antivirus Introducing Ethereum Mining Option
Today, Cybersecurity firm NortonLifeLock, announced launch of Norton Crypto, a new feature that will allow Norton 360 users mine Ethereum safely and securely. For now, selected users from early adopters program will be able to use the feature. In coming months the service will be available to all 13 million Norton 360 customers.
Vincent Pilette, CEO of NortonLifeLock said:
As the crypto economy continues to become a more important part of our customers’ lives, we want to empower them to mine cryptocurrency with Norton, a brand they trust. Norton Crypto is yet another innovative example of how we are expanding our Cyber Safety platform to protect our customers’ ever-evolving digital lives.
Norton jumping the crypto bandwagon is logical as crpyto currencies are getting more and more traction by every passing day. But Norton's claims about security of existing open source Ethereum miners like ethminer or cgminer etc. seems inaccurate as they have been constantly vetted by thousands of devs around the globe.
