Hi,
Anyone else got this Norton Internet Security warning today about being unprotected against a rapidly spreading threat Trojan.Peacomm?

Then unable to clear the message because definitions are already up to date?

Regards,
Jules.

When you say a warning what form did this warning take. Is it something that you got from an email, is it a pop up, or is it something that appears on the actual program screen when you open it?

It's the system tray NIS icon flashing the exclamation mark official legit warning.

It's about this click here

Norton classes it as Trojan.Peacomm

Thanks g but the issue is that NIS gives the alert via the exclamation mark in the system tray & subsequent details window after clicking but there are no available updates from Norton to protect & hence clear the alert.

Yup, have the same "problem" here atm. Warns of the problem, but trying to update definitions gives the same response here too. What version of NIS you using? I have 2005 as it's a Win98 machine and 2006+ don't support Win98.

2006 version

My partner has the same problem, anyone know how to fix it?

According to the Symantec web site definitions are available for this.

click here

It was added to the definitions on 19.01.07,however if you are on a weekly live update then the release date for that is today (22.01.07)

Maybe the new definitions haven't rolled out yet.Try updating again.

To be sure you can manually update with a daily Intelligent Update file available from click here

That should sort you out.
