  1. After loading this update, “Live Update” for Norton flashed a alert window stating that:
    127.0.0.1 om.symantec.com was a malicious addition to my hosts file and prompted me to remove it prior to live update running.

    Is it a malicious addition or is my Norton A/V infected with something.

    Also, what is the difference in using 0 vs 127.0.0.1 in the hosts file?

    Please respond to first question at least at:

    Thank you,

  2. This is not a malicious entry, please see:

    re: 127.0.0.1
    This is the accepted industry standard. There is no published proof that “0” is faster or better to use.
