Norton blocks Facebook as phishing site

Norton blocks Facebook as phishing site

Symantec has pull away an update to its Norton user security software that branded Facebook a phishing site on Wednesday :-O

This misjudgement meant that users of Norton Internet Security were blocked from accessing the most popular social networking site and were told a “fraudulent web page” had been blocked, as seen in a discussion thread on Symantec’s support forums here.

Symantec responded to the problem within a few hours. From the looks of support forum postings affected users were left confused rather than seriously discommode or afflicted by the screw-up.

Security firms update their signature definition files. They are putting their efforts into the quality assurance process in the industry but even so mistakes sometimes occur.

Have you also faced this block from Norton? I would love to hear your experiences. Please write on the comment sections below.
