At the time Flash 4 was shipped there were no known virus infections. It's much more likely that the updated Norton Antivirus detection is incorrectly assuming that the Flash 4 Player contains a new virus.

I'll be contacting Symantec to report this problem but I don't anticipate a resolution until some time after January 3. Most of Macromedia and most of Symantec are closed during the holiday period.

We had a similar situation occur with Director 4, where McAfee antivirus mistakenly reported Director as being infected with a virus. They released an updated virus detection scheme which fixed this problem.

It's rare, but such incidents do occur. It's unfortunate that this one happened at this time.
