Hi,  

We are getting a large amount of hits for this domain which appears to be Symantec owned.  Fairly certain this is a false positive.

* 1:32174 <-> ENABLED <-> BLACKLIST DNS request for known malware domain sr.symcd.com - Osx.Backdoor.iWorm (blacklist.rules)
* 1:32173 <-> ENABLED <-> BLACKLIST DNS request for known malware domain s2.symcb.com - Osx.Backdoor.iWorm (blacklist.rules)

IP address is associated with geotrust, thawte and verisign as well.   

Have checked the references to virustotal but haven't seen anything there suggesting its bad.   Maybe I'm missing something.
