Today, we’re launching a free Norton antivirustic security update to protect you against an ongoing threat, but don’t worry, it’s not a massive update.

Norton has confirmed that it’s still planning to release a 32-Bit version of the antivirus software later this month.

The news comes via the blog of the company’s vice president of global security Matt Young.

It’s the first public announcement since the news broke earlier this week that Microsoft would stop support for the 32-BIT version of its antivirus application.

Microsoft has not yet provided any details about the reasons behind the company not allowing 64-bit versions of the software, and there’s no word yet on when it will happen.

Norton is known for its popular antivirus products, including Norton Antimalware, Norton Security and Norton AntiVirus.
