It all comes down to.... Blizzard should have run the update on a machine that has the latest Norton AntiVirus on it. Upon doing so, they see the update is being flagged as a virus.
From there they should have either adjusted the code in the update to work with NAV (as *all* their previous updates have), OR.. they should have contacted Norton and notified them to whitelist this file.
Telling millions of users to disable their antivirus software in order to run the update was NOT the correct way to go about doing this.
