This should fix itself over time.  Norton is looking at several risk
factors. Two of them are how old the file is and how many other Norton
customers have also installed it. A three-day old file that no one
else has installed is going to look risky.

We can also request that our installer be "whitelisted" by Symantec,
once we have an approved release:

But note that this would need to be done for every language, since the
file names and hashes are different.
