CCleaner Trojan Floxif

I am new to this site.  I have a question, I am wondering why Norton Security did not catch the trojan floxif, that came through in my update for CCleaner.   Malwarebytes did detect and quarantine.   Does this mean I do not have Norton configured correctly?   If this issue is already discussed please point me towards it.

Thanks

Re: CCleaner Trojan Floxif

The answer is that Norton did not detect it.

Once it was verified, Piriform disclosed the virus and took down the infected servers.

I don't think any AV detected prior to Piriform - the whole industry was caught off guard and can only learn from it.

Hello

Norton started protecting against the first CCleaner malware since Sept. 19 Antivirus definitions. I've just asked Norton to post something official about it.

Thanks.

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Norton Core Security Plus 22.17.3.50 Core Firmware 282 I E 11 Chrome latest version.
