Set Norton to protect you from exploits, hackers, and zero-day attacks

A zero-day exploit is a technique that hackers use to take advantage of vulnerabilities in a program in order to perform malicious actions on your computer. Besides slowing down your computer or causing programs to fail, these exploits can expose your personal data and confidential information to hackers.

The Exploit Prevention feature in your Norton product protects applications and files that are prone to exploit attacks. By default, Norton Exploit Prevention is turned on and blocks attacks against vulnerable programs by closing those programs. Norton sends an Attack Blocked notification when it shuts down a program and provides links to information about the attack.
