Symantec Confirms Source Code Leak – Norton Products Not Affected

Late last week, Symantec confirmed that source code used in two of its older enterprise security products was publicly exposed by hackers.  In a statement, the company said that the compromised code is between four and five years old and does not affect Symantec’s consumer-oriented Norton products as had been previously speculated.  Symantec spokesman Cris Paden identified the two affected products as Symantec Endpoint Protection 11.0 and Symantec Antivirus 10.2.  An Indian hacking group calling itself Lords of Dharmaraja had earlier claimed that it had accessed source code for Symantec’s Norton AV products.
