This issue has been validated by Symantec. An update for Norton Password
Manager for Android, version, has been released to address this
issue. Note that the latest Norton Password Manager release is available to
customers through the Google Play Store. Symantec is not aware of any
exploitations or adverse customer impact from this issue.

Symantec recommends the following measures to reduce risk of attack:

  o Keep all operating systems and applications current with vendor patches.
  o Follow a multi-layered approach to security. At a minimum, run both
    firewall and anti-malware applications to provide multiple points of
    detection and protection for both inbound and outbound threats.
  o Deploy network and host-based intrusion detection systems to monitor
    network traffic for signs of anomalous or suspicious activity. This may aid
    in the detection of attacks or malicious activity related to the
    exploitation of latent vulnerabilities.
