Report Code Signing Misuse With Symantec Certificates.

If you have encountered software signed by a Symantec code signing certificate that you believe is being used for malicious or harmful purposes, please report it to Symantec using this form.

Examples Of Misuses Of A Symantec Code Signing Certificate Include But Are Not Limited To:

  • The code acts as “spyware”
  • The code is included as part of a “phishing” scheme
  • Misleading descriptions in the code
  • The code is used for “man-in-the-middle” attacks

Symantec code signing certificates are used by software publishers to assure their customers that software they distribute has not been altered or damaged after it is signed. When you accept software signed by a Symantec code signing certificate, you have the assurance that Symantec has authenticated the identity of the publisher of that software. However, Symantec does not perform any review of that software and makes no representations or warranties concerning the quality of that software.

Before Symantec issues a code signing certificate, the software publisher must agree not to distribute malicious or harmful software of any kind. If Symantec confirms that a software publisher is distributing malicious or harmful software, Symantec reserves the right to immediately revoke any code signing or other certificate(s) it may have issued to such publisher.
