As is well known, Broadcom is the "owner" of Symantec, having acquired the Symantec business in November 2019. Broadcom continues to use the Symantec name to market its highly regarded anti-virus program. When Broadcom distributes a new update to Symantec Endpoint Protection (SEP), it does so as a digitally signed executable file. The current release of SEP is always reported by Broadcom at their website: broadcom.com. The executables distributed by Broadcom (e.g., either a full install or a client-only install) are actually 7-Zip executable files that extract themselves into a temporary file, execute the Setup file, and then clean-up after the install is complete. What one often finds on the Internet is re-compressed versions of the original Broadcom file, usually in the form of a *.rar file. Unfortunately, the digitally signed information from Broadcom is lost when this operation happens. In addition, it sometimes happens that additional files (some not created by Broadcom) are inserted into the new compressed file. The point is simple: the integrity of the re-compressed file is unknown because the digital signature from Broadcom has been lost. Consequently, a person who uses a re-compressed file of unknown provenance places them-self at risk of their computer being compromised. My advice - don't do it. Wait until the digitally signed file from Broadcom is available.
