A program attempts to modify a disk without going through the Macintosh file system. Although this activity could indicate the presence of a virus, some programs (such as ResEdit and Macintosh Programmer’s Workshop) bypass the file system as part of their normal processing.

A program attempts to modify a resource file without passing through checkpoints that Norton Auto-Protect sets up for monitoring modification attempts. This alert is rare. If it appears, be suspicious because only a few programs (for example, THINK C, Pascal, ResEdit, and some fax programs) bypass Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect legitimately. Check the Read Me file for the names of any other software programs that bypass Norton AntiVirus Auto-Protect.

A program attempts to make changes to Norton AntiVirus. If this activity is detected, it could indicate the presence of a virus.

A program attempts to write to the debugger, disassembler, or System file in a System folder. If this activity is detected, it could indicate the presence of a virus.

A program attempts to move, rename, or create a debugger or disassembler file in a System folder. Attempts like this are infrequent and should be viewed suspiciously.

A program attempts to format a disk without the standard format dialog box. This may be caused maliciously by a Trojan horse or legitimately by a program, such as a utility program attempting to create a disk partition. Attempts like this are infrequent and should be viewed suspiciously.
