Source code theft prompts Symantec to issue warning to customers

Symantec is warning its consumers that source code for their antivirus products have been hacked out of their database and is going to be released by Anonymous. This news comes after Symantec recently reported that they have indeed been hacked. It is recommended that users of Norton Antivirus Corporate Edition, Norton Internet Security, Norton SystemWorks, Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0, or Symantec AntiVirus 10.2 apply the latest maintenance patches. 

Symantec also goes on to say that if your company has pcAnywhere deployed, it recommends that you use it only for "business critical purposes" because the software is "at increased risk".
