Norton products detect the threat as Linux.VPNFilter. 

Here is a detailed post about it:

Re: Does my Norton detect VPNfilter malware in my Netgear router

Thank you for your reply.  I had already, previously read the Symantec post you listed for the VPNfilter malware.  But my question is weather or not Norton Security on my laptop - connected to the Netgear router - will alert me to the presence of the malware in the router?  In other words, if I do not receive an alert from Norton Security, can I assume that the malware is not on the router?   If Norton Security can not do this, is there another way to detect weather or not the malware is in the router?           But, perhaps Norton can not help with this conundrum?

Thank you for your help.

Q: Do Symantec/Norton products (Win/Mac/NMS) protect against this threat? 

A: Symantec and Norton products detect the threat as Linux.VPNFilter. 

Acknowledgement: Symantec wishes to thank Cisco Talos and the Cyber Threat Alliance for sharing information on this threat in advance of publication.

A little bit of knowledge is... well a little bit of knowledge.

Hello

Yes it does. I received an email telling me it protected my computer and I don't have a Netgear Router. A Symantec Admin said the Email was authentic and had been sent out by Symantec. I received it last week.

Have a Good Night and

Thanks.
