Symantec hack affects consumer products!

Unread postby Sludge3000 » January 18th, 2012, 3:10 pm

Symantec has backtracked on its previous assurances about a recent source code theft, admitting its network was breached and code for a larger number of products than previously thought was swiped.

Two weeks ago the security giant confessed that a blackhat crew had made off with source code for older versions of some of its enterprise anti-virus products. THe miscreants got hold of the software blueprints after raiding the network of an unnamed "third party entity".

On Tuesday, Symantec issued a revised statement admitting that the code to consumer security packages had also been exposed and warning that users of its remote software product pcAnywhere in particular might be at heightened risk of attack.
