WSA updated automatically on my MacBook Pro several days ago to version 188.8.131.52:1586. It was a quick update and much faster than previous updates.
I am running WSA on macOS BigSur 11.4.
The first thing I noticed after updating WSA is:
- scanning no longer starts immediately after log-in. Instead, only the WSA window appears after log-in, as before, and
- there are no more simultaneous multiple scans occurring after log-in.
The WSA window however will still appear after log-in.
After several days, WSA is still running fine.

When you say scanning time has increased, are you referring to the quick scan, or full scan? Yes, I also noticed an increase in scanning time with each macOS version, but my setting is for a full scan.
I always had it set at the default (Full Scan).
When I set it to “Quick Scan” that only made very little difference in scan time from the time of Full Scan. Quick Scan would scan about 2 or 3 minutes less than the Full. So it was still scan close to an hour.
Btw: I wouldn’t let Norton Software touch my Mac. ROFL
