+ - Symantec Looks Into Claims of Stolen Source Code->

Submitted by wiredmikey
wiredmikey (1824622) writes "A group of hackers claim to have stolen source code for Symantec’s Norton Antivirus software. The group is operating under the name Dharmaraja, and claims it found the data after compromising Indian military intelligence servers.

So far it's unclear if the claims are a significant threat, as the information posted thus far by the hackers includes a document dated April 28, 1999, that Symantec describes as defining the application programming interface (API) for the virus Definition Generation Service. However, a second post entitled ‘Norton AV source code file list’ includes a list of file names reputedly contained within Norton AntiVirus source code package.

Symantec said it is still in the process of analyzing the data in the second post, a Symantec spokesperson said."
