"Yama Tough" has already posted snippets of the code. The code released on Pastebin so far points to the code being from 1999. Symantec itself earlier said the code was from obsolete Enterprise products, not their Norton Security line of consumer products.
"Yama Tough" Tweeted: "This comming (sic) Tuesday behold the full Norton Antivirus 1,7Gb src, the rest will follow,"
In their latest statement, Symantec said:
"The current version of Norton Utilities has been completely rebuilt and shares no common code with Norton Utilities 2006. The code that has been posted for the 2006 version poses no security threat to users of the current version of Norton Utilities."
Odds are that neither hackers or competitors will get much information out of this release, at least not current, up-to-date information. Still, despite the fact that the insecure servers were India government servers, there is still nothing so embarrassing as a security firm hacked in one way or another.
