I won't lie, this is quite disheartening....:(

They are slowly becoming what they are trying to protect us from. Furthermore, they are becoming even more bloated with even less security minded features. It's pretty bad when your major highlight for a new version of a security program is built- in crypto mining.😞 I am sure this will be added to AVG and Avast at some point as well. Sadly the security industry is like a bunch of sheep...once one does it, the majority eventually follows. I won't be surprised if we see this added to other products from other companies outside the Norton umbrella in the future...

Honestly, that Game Booster is interesting. Really want to know how effective a security software which resides in Ring 0 implements way to boost gaming experience, unlike other simple program that simply kill unnecessary services (if possible).
By isolating non-essential apps to a single CPU core, it allows the rest of the CPUs to be allocated to your game for better performance.
Especially games that are sensitive to single-core performance but pretty sure performance gain won't really visible except by looking at three digit fps benchmark.

Well, in here seems to be in a little outraged bubble out of the mainstream, it seems. New York City just got has a new mayor and that mayor has stated he will be accepting his first three paychecks in coin. He intends to make NYC a crypto-friendly global hub. So this is sending a strong message to the mainstream.


According to my top secret sources, the reaction to the Eric Adams election at Norton HQ:
