Users Can Now Mine Ethereum Via Norton Antivirus 360 – Official.

A renowned cybersecurity firm, NortonLifeLock, has launched Norton Crypto, a tool that permits its users to “safely” mine cryptocurrency through its Norton 360 product.

Since from Thursday, select 360 users will be invited to join Norton’s early adopter program for Ethereum [ETH] mining. Norton also plans to open up the mining service to all or any of its nearly 13 Mln 360 users within the coming months. Norton emphasized that its service permits users to mine without requiring them to modify their antivirus software.

While speaking to CNN Business, Norton outlined it plans to support mining of other “top cryptos that permits our members to urge the very best reward for their computing capacity” moving forward, stating:

“While the corporate will start slow, with attention on helping customers safely mine Ethereum, NortonLifeLock is considering adding reputable cryptocurrencies within the future.”

NortonLifeLock chief product officer Vincent Pilette expressed pride in his firm becoming the primary cybersecurity company offering services allowing miners “to safely and simply turn the idle time on their PCs into a chance to earn digital currency.”

Norton claims to offer superior security measures to existing mining protocols, stating: “For years, many coin miners have had to require risks in their go after cryptocurrency, disabling their security so as to run coinmining and allowing unvetted code on their machines that would be skimming from their earnings or maybe planting ransomware.”

To help remedy the purported risks, Norton added that the miners using its product will receive earnings into Norton’s cloud-based wallet, averting risks of the wallet being lost to a hard-drive failure.
