Respond to the KRACK vulnerability alert from Norton 360

Device Security feature in Norton 360 scans your device and alerts you about known vulnerabilities such as KRACK, and untrusted certificates if found. If any of such risks are detected, Norton 360 helps you with information on how to fix the risks.
