Norton Security’s online security software has confirmed a new threat against its services, saying that it is still investigating the matter.
The security software’s online reporting tool, Norton Security, has detected an unusual attack that it believes is related to the new threat.
The company says it has now suspended the service and is currently working with law enforcement authorities to investigate the incident.
Norton Security has not yet released a statement to Reuters.
The threat comes amid heightened scrutiny over the security of the world’s most popular online payment system, PayPal.
A cybersecurity researcher last month found evidence that PayPal had been hacked, with the company disclosing that the hack had exposed more than 70 million customers’ names, email addresses, phone numbers, credit card numbers and credit card information.
Nontech’s website is now offline and it’s unclear if the threat has been detected by Norton’s online reports tool or other methods.
