Specially if you are the one who needs to manually update it.
If this continues to be an issue, I will need to re-submit sis.exe and sis64.exe to Symantec every time we roll out a version of the binary via Steam. That's not actually undoable, contrary to what their support guy said, Symantec appears to have about a 1-business day turnaround time for whitelist submissions, and that's usually going to be sufficient to get a new binary on the list before it gets rolled out.
But yes, it would be, at best, annoying. That said, if anyone using Norton/Symantec experiences more false positives, they should post about them here (or let me know via some other channel), and I'll start spamming that webform with SiS exes.
